“Brownfields” is the term used to describe property that has previously been used for industrial or commercial purposes and may be contaminated by low concentrations of hazardous waste. Through its Brownfields program, the State of North Carolina offers financial incentives to developers willing to remediate these contaminated sites.
A Brownfields agreement with the State can help innocent landowners or potential purchasers (those who have had no hand in the contamination), sell or purchase contaminated property while avoiding or minimizing liability that Federal or State agencies might otherwise impose.
Rob Gelblum, of counsel to our firm, served as the chief attorney to the N.C. Brownfields Program from its inception in 1997 until 2012. Negotiation of a Brownfields Agreement with the State is a challenging and complex matter. Please call our office to discuss your case with our experienced attorneys.
