Purchase of the Philly Proceedings 

Philadelphia Conference October 7-9, 2014

Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill Hotel - One Dock Street, (2nd and Walnut Streets), Philadelphia, PA 19106 USA


Managing environmental risk successfully is challenging for all types of corporate and real estate deals, from one-off deals to portfolio commercial/industrial property transactions to idled municipal brownfield properties.  The environmental risk and liability concerns that arise in Mergers & Acquisitions to the legacy liabilities associated with the redevelopment of brownfield sites require the use of bullet proof legal tactics, deal strategies that can bracket and or transfer the environmental risks and the financial tools to close the deal.

This RTM Communications, Inc., conference zeroes in on deal flow of  corporate and local government property types, business tactics and strategies for reducing the uncertainty caused by environmental risk and closing the deals employing creative environmental risk management approaches.

 The National Association of Local Government Environmental Professionals (NALGEP) is pleased to be a collaborator and sponsor to the RTM Communications, Inc., conference.  This national conference demonstrates the critical importance of bringing together the private and public sectors in a constructive dialogue and working relationship.  The NALGEP breakout sessions will focus on issues that range from complex brownfields transactions to site cleanups and redevelopments, to the effects of climate change on commercial/industrial properties and infrastructure to performing renewable energy technologies to maximizing energy efficiency for commercial buildings.

Environmental risk can impact the success of closing the transaction, valuation of the assets, and the transfer of legacy liabilities. It takes creative funding, the bracketing of environmental risk using rigorous and alternative due diligence and remedial alternatives, and deal structuring techniques grounded in bullet proof legal and risk management strategies to assure that the redevelopment or reuse or successful disposition of the surplus or stranded assets can be successfully implemented.

 The Conference will also delve into facilitating dynamic energy transactions and sustainable brownfield redevelopments that include the siting and financing of renewable energy/clean technology, the business, regulatory and environmental risk management issues pertinent to hydraulic fracturing and shale gas production and the opportunities and risks of performing innovative and cost-effective remediation at complex sites including former manufacturing sites and defense sites. 

 If there is only one conference you can attend this year this is the ONE that will allow practitioners to capitalize on business strategies and tactics for closing corporate real estate and municipal property transactions where environmental risk gets cost effectively managed.
