FacebookTwitterLinkedIn

Environmental laws, propounded in order to hold polluters liable for remediation, are often in conflict with bankruptcy laws’ general principles of a “fresh start” and the ability to shed certain financial burdens. Bankruptcy laws automatic stay is one such protection – the enjoinment of parties from taking actions against the debtor upon the filing of the bankruptcy petition – that is sometimes trumped by environmental law concerns, namely, the police and regulatory exception to the automatic stay.  

This webinar addresses the tensions between bankruptcy and environmental law, and examines how bankruptcy law deals with property contamination issues, the sale or abandonment of contaminated property, successor liability, environmental cleanup claims, and dischargeability of governmental claims.
