This program is complimentary but limited to ACC members, prospective ACC members and guests of the sponsor. Space is limited.

Buying or selling real estate, purchasing or selling a business, leasing a facility, or financing any of the above: business transactions must consider potential liability for environmental conditions. Please join us for a practical session that will help you and your company:

  • Get comfortable with the major environmental liability schemes—and defenses
  • Understand the variety of environmental issues that can affect a property—and your bottom line
  • Understand the various levels of environmental due diligence assessment methods, their legal and practical implications, and choose the right level of due diligence
  • Know how to leverage environmental due diligence information to effectively manage risk, and
  • Recognize traps for the unwary

You will also get the most current information on the new standards for Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, the increased governmental scrutiny on the risks relating to vapor intrusion, and a more detailed understanding of what it means to have conducted “All Appropriate Inquiry”—and what is required in order to qualify for a Bona Fide Prospective Purchaser defense under CERCLA.
