Oklahoma Brownfields Conference 2006

The Oklahoma Brownfields Conference 2006, scheduled for November 30th and December 1st, is reaching out to property owners, public sector, and private sector entities with a stake in redevelopment in our state. There are many important regulatory requirements that must be considered when developing a site with known or suspected environmental issues. There are also many layers of technical and financial resources available to assist eligible entities during redevelopment projects.

On Thursday morning at 11:00 a.m., Mary Ellen Ternes, an environmental attorney with McAfee & Taft, will speak regarding owner liability.

During the Friday afternoon session from 1:30-3:30 p.m., Ms. Ternes will moderate a discussion among senior attorneys from McAfee & Taft’s Real Estate and Environmental practice areas regarding liability arising from the purchase, sale, lease, ownership, and operation of, and security interest in, contaminated property and standard legal practices and business options for addressing these risks, including use of the 2002 Brownfields Amendments, the scope of the new protections and how to maintain these protections in the transactional context through All Appropriate Inquiry and performance of required post-closing duties.  The discussion will also address valuation of contaminated property, related tax implications and possible tax advantages.
