Contaminated Sites, Remediation, & Brownfield Work

National brownfields practice with extensive experience across the country.

Meet the team

Locke Lord lawyers have substantial experience in brownfields and brownfields-type redevelopment of urban infill properties and related transactional work, spanning virtually all states and the District of Columbia. We focus on the strategic utilization of available grant and tax incentive programs, site investigations that support our clients' specific objectives, assessment of regulatory and litigation risks, oversight of technical evaluations that characterize exposure pathways that ultimately drive risk and execution of remediation strategies that reinforce risk-based cleanup. We also work on scores of Brownfield, voluntary cleanup and corrective action projects each year. Our national practice enables us to understand the regulatory framework in different states and to develop close working relationships with consultants, regulators and local project teams in these jurisdictions.

In our brownfields and urban redevelopment transactional work, we focus on analyzing environmental risks and allocation of liabilities in connection with the purchase, sale and development of these properties and developing transactional structure and documentation to help reduce the potential for environmental liability.
