Paladin Law Group’s attorneys are heavily involved in Brownfields redevelopment projects. A Brownfields site is defined as “real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminant.” These projects typically involve complex, multi-dimensional negotiations with property sellers on real estate and risk allocation issues, government agencies, insurers, prospective purchasers or tenants, and with zoning authorities. Paladin Law Group assists clients in reducing the ultimate costs associated with the redevelopment of these contaminated sites. The firm has counseled developers, investors, redevelopment agencies, and other public entities interested in redeveloping contaminated sites.
When appropriate, Paladin uses its experience in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) to maximize GRESB scoring for Brownfields redevelopment projects.
Paladin has also represented clients in environmental litigation and insurance litigation matters associated with Brownfield redevelopment sites.
