Remediation

Sometimes a client will find they own contaminated property. Sometimes this ownership is intentional, such as in a brownsfields transaction. Whether the client obtained the property voluntarily, or whether the property became contaminated through the operation of the client’s business, we represent land owners who seek to work with the various agencies in performing a voluntary clean up of their property.

Most states have voluntary clean-up programs that allow risk-based remediation that takes into account the future use of the property. Greensfelder environmental lawyers coordinate such clean ups with the regulatory program, its consultant, and the client to work toward a cost effective remediation. We also work with insurers, if appropriate, to eliminate future risk due to unforeseen contamination or third party liability that is not readily known.
