WSP's team is skilled at assessing all elements of environmental risk associated with real estate and corporate transactions. In 2006 we were voted ‘Environmental Advisor of the Year’ in a leading industry awards event.
We assess risks that include compliance issues, contaminated land and asbestos. We also cover the emerging areas of importance in corporate due diligence such as carbon emissions, corporate responsibility, product environmental compliance and reputational risk.
In addition, drawing on the expertise that exists across WSP, we also assess the built environment, providing an integrated technical due diligence service for our clients.
The impact of environmental, health and safety liabilities, in terms of capital outlay, management time and reputational impact, mean that they must be considered and drawn into an organisation’s acquisition, ownership and exit strategies. WSP provides a clear understanding of the impacts with total predicted costs and annual spending projections.
Clients are assured that our advice is commercially focused, clearly communicated, delivered on time and backed with appropriate levels of professional indemnity cover.
We are retained by investors, lending institutions and corporations involved in M&A. We regularly work in-conjunction with our clients’ real estate and legal advisers.
