We advise our business clients on matters related to the purchase and remediation of certain properties that are commonly called "brownfields." Typically, such properties were previously used for industrial or other commercial uses and have since been contaminated by various concentrations of hazardous waste or other pollution. Despite their condition, many of these lands are in urban areas now being revitalized, and such lands have the potential to be profitably reused once properly cleaned up. The general public is served by the remediation of prior pollution on abandoned properties. As such, there are often grants and other public resources available to address such sites.
With respect to all these issues, our attorneys advise clients on how best to navigate all dealings related to their interests in "brownfields."
