Giuliano Apadula, a shareholder in Greenberg Traurig, LLP’s Environmental Practice in Philadelphia, will speak at Brownfields 2023 Friday, August 11 at 9:00 a.m. The conference will be held in Detroit this year.

The annual conference brings together stakeholders from industry, government, and the community to discuss the remediation and redevelopment of contaminated properties, known as brownfields. Giuliano’s panel, “Using Insurance to De-Risk Your Brownfields Project: A Step-by-Step Risk Mitigation Process,” will discuss evaluating the legal, environmental, and business risks associated with brownfields projects, negotiating with insurance carriers to get the coverage needed, and using insurance as a tool when selling brownfields properties.

Giuliano focuses his practice on evaluating, managing, and mitigating large-scale environmental risks for the acquisition, sale, development, and financing of real estate and businesses nationwide. He employs a pragmatic approach in counseling clients on environmental issues by evaluating the business impact of each issue and crafting bespoke strategies, including contractually allocating and insuring environmental liability. Giuliano routinely negotiates, structures, and drafts specialized environmental insurance programs and complex agreements that form the basis of the risk transfer process. He negotiates the placement of equity and debt for projects that would otherwise struggle because of onerous environmental liabilities, and he addresses environmental obstacles in merger and acquisition transactions.
