Environmental Liability in Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Thank you

Thank you for joining us today.


Environmental liability is one the biggest risks in acquiring and/or developing commercial real estate. When environmental risk is not accurately assessed, allocated and/or hedged, the parties to the deal are exposed to very substantial financial liability and the fundamental economics of the deal are jeopardized.

This program provides a practical guide to developments in environmental diligence in real estate deals, allocating or hedging the risk, and post-closing concerns.

  • Sources of environmental liability under federal law
  • Assessing risk: Estimating liabilities and incorporating findings into deal documents
  • Developments in affirmative defenses
  • Contractual allocation of liability
  • Uses of environmental insurance
  • Post-closing concerns
