Brownfields Law and Practice: The Cleanup and Redevelopment of Contaminated Land
The complete guide for developers, investors, lenders, property owners, and others who want to seize the opportunity of profitable investment, voluntary cleanup or redevelopment of contaminated land and for their attorneys. It is replete with practice notes and analysis of rapidly evolving federal and state initiatives, programs and policies so that lawyers can most effectively counsel their clients, consider choices in structuring brownfields transactions and negotiate agreements with other parties, including exit strategies to enable brownfields projects to successfully proceed.
Every aspect of the Brownfields endeavor, such as legal liability pitfalls, assessments of contamination, self-audit privilege laws, valuation of contaminated property, financial issues and incentives, tax considerations, and specialized insurance policies is considered in-depth. In addition, explanations of federal and state requirements as to problems frequently encountered in the brownfields cleanup process, such as underground storage tanks, asbestos-containing materials, vapor intrusion, lead-based paint, hazardous substance spills, environmental contractor licensing and laboratory certification, are provided.
