Brownfields Remediation and Reuse
Through our representation of public agencies, developers and other parties in contaminated ground clean-up efforts, we understand re-use from all sides. We seek to protect our clients from undue environmental liabilities by appropriately allocating risk in agreements and by using appropriate tools to reduce brownfields liabilities.
Our expertise in using such tools—including the Polanco Redevelopment Act, the California Land Reuse and Revitalization Act of 2004 (AB 389), Prospective Purchaser Agreements, and environmental insurance—is extensive. We have also worked to help clients obtain environmental insurance policies such as cost cap coverage, third-party liability coverage, and other liability coverage.
