Robert focuses on environmental and real estate law.
PERMITS & COMPLIANCE -- For his corporate clients he has become a risk-
management adviser. His detailed familiarity with all state and federal environmental statutes and regulations assists corporations with timely and thorough permit applications, followed by always-defensible permit compliance interpretation.
Robert’s in-depth knowledge of Alaska’s environmental laws and federal environtal laws, honed over four decades of practice, enables him to provide quick, efficient, counseling and violation avoidance.
RESOLVING CONTAMINATED PROPERTY ISSUES -- Contaminated land is a
common problem. Developers, landlords, beneficiaries of trusts or estates and even purchasers of single-family homes are often dismayed to find petroleum or other hazardous substances in the ground of realty they have come to own.
Robert guides purchasers through pre-acquisition
due diligence and negotiated contractual allocation of cleanup costs. For those who already own contaminated land, Robert brings to bear his vast experience working in every region of Alaska, with all manner of pollutants, to identify the most cost-effective remedy. From PFAS to petroleum, Robert has effectively assisted landowners with every manner of pollution problem.
REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS -- On matters of real estate, Robert drafts,
negotiates, and implements purchase agreements, easements, restrictive covenants, Common Interest Community documents, security instruments, commercial and residential leases, and other documents pertinent to acquisition, management and disposition of real estate. Whether
starting from scratch or spotting and correcting issues in documents generated by the other parties, Robert has garnered compliments from many clients thanks to his eye for detail and ability to succinctly craft precise, thorough, balanced and easily understood provisions.
