Transactional support

Transactional support

A major part of the Environmental team’s work is concerned with providing advice on Corporate and Property transactions to multinational corporations, developers and financial institutions.

We advise on the management of Environmental risks and liabilities in:

  • Mergers
  • Acquisitions
  • Disposals
  • Financing
  • Projects
  • Joint ventures

In addition to the complicated drafting and negotiation that is typical on any such transaction, we have assisted our clients to obtain environmental audits and reports from consultants and unique insurance products that have facilitated deals.

Our experience includes advising on:

  • Ring-fencing environmental liabilities (including those relating to contaminated land, asbestos, waste and radioactive substances)
  • Negotiation of appropriate warranties and indemnities
  • The sale of insolvent companies with environmental liabilities
  • Environmental impairment insurance for latent risks
  • Waste management and environmental permitting issues
  • The appointment of environmental consultants and contractors, terms and conditions of appointment, interpreting consultants’ reports and the effective assessment of liability risk
  • The purchase of heavily contaminated sites, involving co-ordination of extensive environmental due diligence, appointment of environmental consultants and negotiation of comprehensive environmental indemnities and warranties
  • Disposal and remediation issues arising at an ex-chemical works
  • Sale, purchase and financing of contaminated land at petrol station sites
  • Planning issues
