Those in California who enter real estate transactions or other business arrangements often face challenges regarding various laws and governing regulations. To prevent problems, it is often best to learn as much as possible ahead of time in order to familiarize oneself with potential risks. Environmental counsel and risk assessment guidance often proves helpful in such situations.

Knowing how to identify and assess potential risks increases one’s chances of finding cost-effective ways to address such issues when they arise. Lacking skill in this area could lead to possible problems involving compliance responsibilities and liability for violations. A business attorney with experience in environmental law knows how to draft language in a purchase agreement to place such responsibilities with the other party.

Many times, basic general counsel is all that is needed to prevent complicated battles further down the line. Some situations require litigation in order to obtain agreeable results. Whether you own a small or mid-size company, you may benefit from consulting with skilled representatives who have experience in all aspects of state and federal environmental law.
