Join Philip Hinerman, a partner at Fox Rothschild who has been named a leading Pennsylvania environmental attorney by Chambers USA, for a webinar on lessons learned from Brownfield development.
- The redevelopment of the property eliminates the prior BF stigma, which is an important element of the liability transfer.
- It is important to use a financially robust contractor with strong civil/geotechnical/environmental capabilities in managing known conditions.
- Unknown conditions rejected for coverage by the PLL policy provider can be used as a tool in establishing contractor responsibility for the cost of the cleanup.
- We clean BF properties to a re-use, not the most stringent regulatory standard.
