Emerging Contaminants and the Safe Drinking Water Act: The Biden Effect
Throughout his campaign and during the first 100 days of his administration, President Biden has promised to aggressively regulate emerging contaminants and aggressively reinvigorate the Safe Drinking Water Act. This presentation will provide an update of President Biden’s efforts to regulate emerging contaminants under the Safe Drinking Water Act. The presentation will also discuss other efforts by the Biden Administration to revitalize the Safe Drinking Water Act, including revisiting the recent revisions made to the Lead and Copper Rule.

Representing Owners, Investors, Sellers, Buyers and Lenders Involved with Commercial Real Estate in 2021
In this hour, we will cover caveat emptor and essential due diligence principles that may also qualify as “an all-appropriate inquiry.” Topics will include: Who cares about an all-appropriate inquiry? Do folks really invest, buy, own commercial real estate or lend money using commercial real estate as security, while expecting their investment to be safe following a win in litigation? What good is Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Report? What good is a No Further Remediation (“NFR”) Letter issued by Illinois EPA’s Site Remediation Program pursuant to Title XVII of the Illinois Environmental Protection Act. Why skilled lawyers are essential in commercial real estate transactions.
