Large-Firm Experience, Small-Firm Commitment to Your Legal Needs

When you need a qualified lawyer to lead or guide through the confusing bureaucratic maze associated with redeveloping Brownfields properties, think of Jeffrey M. Sanders, PLLC.

Brownfields are a potential alternative to building manufacturing facilities in virgin farmland or a green space. For the past decade, the state of Kentucky has pushed for redevelopment of previously contaminated property, especially in its larger cities where contaminated property often sits vacant in prime industrial locations.

We support the government’s efforts in this area and welcome the opportunity to assist you in the redeveloping of Brownfields property. Done correctly, it is a wonderful way to recycle and reuse prime industrial sites located in many of our cities. We strongly advocate redevelopment of Brownfields property in the proper situation.

Kentucky's Voluntary Environmental Remediation Act provides a time-saving, cost-effective method of cleaning up and reusing Brownfields property through the state’s Voluntary Cleanup Program. This regulatory program can often provide significant protections for our clients against potential liabilities that may otherwise be associated with the property's use.

For example, a client may enter into an agreed order with the state agency to clean up a Brownfield property. Once the work is complete, the client will receive a covenant not to sue from the state, upon completion of an approved corrective action plan. Done correctly, it can be a tremendous “win-win” situation for everyone involved. And that's just one example of how our environmentally forward-looking law firm can capably assist you in putting the benefits of this regulatory program to work.
