Brownfields Redevelopment



We identify viable site and partnering opportunities, working with government authorities to maximize available tax credits, grants and other incentives to add value to our clients’ projects. We also help our clients navigate a complex and multi-stakeholder process practically and efficiently to achieve their redevelopment objectives.

Our approach

Contaminated properties, “brownfields,” once considered a serious potential liability, can be a lucrative investment opportunity.

With the right strategic partner, you can understand and manage the potential liabilities to move your business forward effectively. Having a foot in both real estate and environmental industries, Nixon Peabody’s Brownfield Transactional team is fully equipped to help private developers and public entity clients achieve their development goals while avoiding the potential pitfalls.

We have successfully completed redevelopment projects on land previously considered too polluted for profitable use—and have helped to secure some of the first brownfields tax credits ever awarded.

In CERCLA/site remediation, we have been the lead project firm for over 100 client-owned, multi-party state or federal hazardous waste, brownfields, voluntary cleanup or Superfund sites in several dozen states across the United States and in several countries.

We work with clients on all aspects of the transaction—from pre-acquisition due diligence and land use planning to environmental quality review, remediation and wetland disturbance.
