The ABA has published a new environmental law book focused on environmental considerations in corporate transactions. According to the ABA, the book not only provides practical approaches to minimize or manage environmental liabilities but can also help extract value in transactions when adopted early enough in a deal. The book addresses a broad array of environmental issues that often arise in business transactions including but not limited to Clean Water Act, TSCA, CERCLA, toxic tort, environmental due diligence and successor liability concerns.

Jenner & Block attorneys authored three chapters in this new book: Chapter 5 – Clean Air Act Issues in Business Transactions – Bill S. Forcade (Ret.); Chapter 14 – Using Federal and State Auditing Policies in Business Transactions – Steve Siros and Michael Strong; and, Chapter 15 – SEC Disclosure Obligations: Increasing Scrutiny on Environmental Liabilities and Climate Change Impacts – E. Lynn Grayson and Patricia Boye-Williams.

The book is available from the ABA at
