Due Diligence

Assessing a Matter from Yesterday, Today, & Tomorrow’s Environmental Threats

E&W looked at the deep risk picture when it was retained by a deal team to assess material risk related to the acquisition of a large chemical process facility which had been targeted by local environmental advocacy groups.

This legal analysis included not just reviewing of traditional legacy environmental risks associated with contaminated properties, but also assessing the compliance status of the chemical process facility from all perspectives, including the history of its Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act permitting, and applicable elements of the Clean Air Act’s Risk Management Program.

The results of E&W’s insights and analysis was a client with a comprehensive understanding of historic, current, and emerging risk that positioned it to execute optimal decisions on a critical transaction.
