Environmental liability can be a deal-breaker in many transactions. The liability should be addressed as early as possible in the negotiation with a risk assessment process, using “real numbers” that have been substantiated by a third party valuation. Without a trusted expert having both financial and field experience, getting the full picture will be difficult if not impossible. Moreover, the strategies that evolve from expert liability valuation generate negotiating options and opportunities for clients, and can be instrumental in facilitating rapid, cost-effective deal closing.
TBLS brings the analytics, tools, financial solutions and know-how to effectively quantify and settle issues associated with environmental liabilities in order to accelerate deal-closing. Our work includes the use of ASTM methodology and proprietary databases as a grounding to enable liability buyouts, risk mitigation and negotiation strategies. Whether the transaction involves a Superfund site, Brownfield or other remediation, our experience can help you close the deal.
TBLS experts have extensive experience working with law firms, individual attorneys, in-house counsel, legislative and governmental counsel, compliance officers and other legal advisors on a wide range of environmental issues, problems and opportunities.
