At JMS, our fundamental technical skill is the assessment and quantification of environmental risk and liability associated with real property and facility operations.
A JMS risk assessment includes a thorough and deliberate review and analysis of many factors including current and historic site operations, investigation results and regulations. Based on the review and quantification of those factors, JMS constructs a realistic model of current environmental risk associated with a facility, process, operation, organization or property. Once a valid and complete risk model is constructed, potential cost liability can be quantified and evaluated. This approach is effective for allocating capital improvements to reduce environmental risk at operating facilities or assessing remediation cost risk during property transactions.
The same measured approach has proven effective whether we represent buyers or sellers since a successful transaction requires a realistic appraisal of environmental risk. Proper due diligence is critical to the effective management of environmental liability; JMS helps clients identify, assess and quantify those environmental risks.
JMS provides the following liability and risk assessment services:
