Latent (and even flaming) environmental risks play an important role in the monitoring of problem commercial real estate loans, in the decision to foreclosure and in the sale of foreclosed properties.

For many servicers and lenders, these risks are not fully understood – perhaps simply because in the "good economy" (prior to 2008), lenders relied heavily upon third party reports.  Once a loan hits the watch list, however, the topic goes to the top of the list, and receives all sorts of attention.

At noon (CST) on Tuesday, October 11, 2011, Winstead attorneys Andrew Fono & Rebecca Rentz will broadcast a free webinar designed to help improve your ability to identify and mitigate environmental risks related to monitoring and selling of real property that is impacted with environmental problems.

During the webinar, a brief overview of key environmental laws will be followed by a discussion of various environmental risk planning and mitigation tools, and the application of such tools into "real life" case studies.

You’ll enjoy meeting Andrew or Rebecca.  Each brings a "real life" and unique experience and perspective to this topic:

  • During his service as a reserve officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, Andrew was a Deputy Environmental Counsel for the Office of Counsel to the Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps.
  • In In 2007, Rebecca was named Environmental Regulator of the Year by the Texas Association of Environmental Professionals.

This webinar should be both interesting AND helpful to you.
