Encouraging Investment in Environmentally Sensitive Projects

Investments in Environmentally Sensitive Projects - Environmental Law Attorneys

N.W. Bernstein & Associates, LLC, has the background to encourage investment in environmentally sensitive projects. For example:

  • Mr. Bernstein, working with venture capital firms, developed structural mechanisms to control investors' environmental risks while providing much of the "up side" of stock ownership.
  • He has helped a major manufacturer establish a company's internal management and compliance systems to minimize environmental risks under governmental enforcement policies and to facilitate migration toward ISO 14000 compliance.
  • He has obtained New York Department of Environmental Conservation (NYDEC) approval for the site of a large pigment manufacturing plant to be re-developed under New York's then Voluntary Cleanup Plan, after having extracted the plant from NYDEC enforcement proceedings.
  • Relationships in London formed over the past year may facilitate raising capital on the London Stock Exchanges AIM market and knowledge of the Equator Principles and how they are actually being implemented may facilitate project finance in developing countries that involve environmental risks that are more than trivial.

The law firm of N.W. Bernstein & Associates, LLC, has the ability to integrate financial, environmental, and potential litigation aspects of transactions involving environmentally sensitive projects.
