As environmental issues have become increasingly public, it has become difficult for organizations to navigate the maze of environmental risks, liabilities and regulations associated with real estate transactions. Dickinson Wright helps our clients understand the environmental issues relating to proposed real estate transactions (sale, purchase, lease, financing), on-going property ownership and operation, and corporate transactions (mergers, acquisitions and divestitures).
Our experienced team assists clients with all environmental aspects of a transaction, including: negotiating contract terms and conditions, retaining consultants, reviewing reports, assessing risks and actively resolving environmental issues. Dickinson Wright attorneys have advised both private and public sector clients in thousands of real estate and corporate projects worldwide, ranging from multi-million dollar acquisitions, financings and divestitures to the sale or lease of small business properties.
