Environmental Matters

Unless you have been living under a rock you have probably seen headlines regarding resident/tenant mold or lead based claims. Often these claims are defensible. But they must be taken seriously because, if not handled properly, your liability can be significant.

Ultimately you may choose to submit environmental claims to your insurer, your initial action/reaction in response to the claims can have a drastic affect on the claim, and your carrier may try to find a way to avoid defending these claims.

Our multifamily attorneys have significant experience working with property owners, managers, and insurers to triage environmental claims and, if necessary, work with you to provide a zealous defense of environmental claims.
