We help buyers and sellers keep acquisitions profitable and on track by identifying potential roadblocks and minimizing liability.
Holland & Hart’s team has extensive experience representing clients engaged in asset and equity transactions with environmental and real property components. We deliver sound counsel on leasing, mergers and acquisitions, and financing transactions in projects involving energy and natural resources, brownfield redevelopment, remediation, and decommissioning.
With a nuanced understanding of key environmental regulations, liability, and compliance frameworks, our attorneys work with clients to evaluate potential environmental liabilities and develop strategies to minimize the present and future risks associated with these liabilities. The firm’s environmental transactions team brings substantial experience with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), state hazardous waste laws, and related programs that can have significant implications for stakeholders and potentially responsible parties (PRPs) engaged in complex transactions.
We leverage this expertise to develop effective plans of action that withstand judicial scrutiny, including permitting strategies, redevelopment plans, insurance and indemnity provisions, and administrative settlement agreements. We also assist clients in negotiating and drafting agreements and related contracts with state and federal regulatory agencies and private parties to protect their business interests long into the future.
