Environmental Risk Management

Exposure to environmental risk affects far more companies than those directly involved with hazardous materials. All are subject to the costs and liabilities of environmental exposures. Risk managers in virtually every industry must proactively analyze environmental risk issues to determine their vulnerabilities.

Our in-house legal expertise enables us to understand the intricacies of contracts, and consequently, the assumption of environmental risk and liability they may hold. As part of our advisory role, we ensure clients understand their full spectrum of liability and then we identify where they are insured, underinsured or outright self insuring risk. In this capacity we review a myriad of client contracts including but not limited to Purchase and Sale Agreements, lease agreements, and vendor/service contracts.
