Merger/Acquisitions Are Heating Up

If the forecasts by economists and others who follow such things are correct, 2011 will see the pace of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) on the rise. Richard Peterson, Analyst, Standard and Poor’s said in a recent PBS interview that U.S. M&A activity could reach $900 billion in 2011.

M&A’s involve potential risk and potential reward.  Part of the risk is the environmental component; that is, what are the environmental liabilities associated with the company and/or property and how do you quantify this risk.

We have a new Environmental Minute that addresses M&A Environmental Due Diligence, “Merger/Acquisition Environmental Due Diligence: Putting The Potential Risks in Proper Perspective.”  If you would like a copy of this document, go to our website ( or contact our office at 248-932-0228.
