Environmental Real Estate

Nelson Mullins' team of environmental attorneys is experienced in helping real estate clients navigate the due diligence and regulatory review required to minimize the risk of environmental liability in real estate transactions, mergers and acquisitions, asset sales, and other business transactions.  We help clients arrange for and interpret the results of environmental site assessments and use the results to evaluate the need for sampling and testing, the impact of potential liabilities on the financial aspects of the deal, and the ways of limiting those liabilities. We assess information provided by environmental professionals to satisfy the environmental inquiry required for CMBS transitions and other financing tools. In addition, our environmental attorneys negotiate contracts and terms for brownfield redevelopment and voluntary clean-up contracts. When applicable, our team negotiates the nuances of environmental insurance.  We also provide counseling on permitting, regulatory, and land use issues both before and after closing a purchase transaction. our environmental attorneys’ regulatory and litigation experience gives our clients the benefit of a practical approach aimed at quantifying and minimizing unacceptable risks of liability.
