Real Estate and Environmental Law

Real Estate and Environmental Law
 
I represent public entities and private owners and developers on various aspects of real estate ownership and development, including purchase, sale, construction, leasing and management of commercial, industrial, and residential projects.

I have also been working in the field of Environmental Law since the late 1980’s and served as Chairman of the Environmental Law Section of the Grand Rapids’ Bar Association. I have worked on federal Superfund cleanupprojects and on numerous other private sector real property cleanups throughout the state of Michigan.

My practice has been particularly in the context of commercial or industrial transactions and affairs, including underground storage tank matters, regulatory and permitting compliance, CERCLA, hazardous waste management, brownfield redevelopment, environmental site assessments, including baseline environmental assessments, and site cleanups under state and federal environmental statutes.
