Environmental Issues

Environmental laws and regulations can have a huge impact on real property transactions. We regularly interact with the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other governmental agencies to determine how those laws and regulations should be interpreted and applied. We also advise clients on the sometimes significant implication of environmental laws and regulations on other aspects of their business operations. To assure we deliver the best guidance, we routinely draw expertise from other members of our own Carruthers & Roth multidisciplinary team, including attorneys experienced in Acquisition and Sales, Leasing, Real Estate Development, Real Estate Financing, Title Claims and Disputes, Zoning and Land Use and other practice areas.
