Due Diligence in New Jersey

Jeff will be joined by Chemmie Sokolic, Due Diligence Expert, and Ben Alter, P.G., LSRP, of GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc., who will discuss:

  • Types and components of environmental due diligence and when they should be performed
  • Types of environmental assessments in New Jersey and what they include, what they don’t, the protections they offer, and when they should be performed
    • ASTM Phase Environmental Site Assessment (Phase I)
    • Preliminary Assessment (PA)
  • Roles and legal liabilities of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals

Due diligence is the process where environmental professionals, attorneys, engineers, real estate professionals, and developers, have the opportunity to assess risks and protect clients from unwarranted environmental liability in real estate and other business transactions. The focus of the “Due Diligence in New Jersey” course is to educate those professionals on the environmental risks and liabilities potentially associated with real estate transactions; how environmental due diligence can limit and offer protections against those risks and liabilities; and identify the various laws, regulations, standards, and guidance documents from where the due diligence activities are extracted.
