Wactor & Wick attorneys work with private, public and institutional buyers, lenders and sellers of shopping centers all over the United States to quickly and efficiently evaluate the environmental risks and costs of shopping center acquisition, finance, leasing, and sale.  Common environmental problems include contamination of soil and groundwater and vapor intrusion risks from operations such as dry cleaners, gas stations, auto parts and vehicle maintenance operations.  We work with consultants to develop realistic cost estimates for problem resolution closure and then work directly with the clients, consultants and regulators to move the problems through the regulatory maze to site closure.
