Maureen Crough is counsel in Sidley’s New York office and has represented domestic and non-US purchasers, sellers, lenders, landlords and tenants in the environmental aspects of a broad range of financial transactions in the environmental practice. Maureen has been involved in numerous aspects of environmental due diligence, evaluation of environmental insurance for use in transactions, negotiation of environmental provisions in acquisition and loan agreements, resolution of environmental matters in bankruptcy and environmental counseling pertaining to financial transactions. In related matters, she represents clients in buyer/seller environmental dispute resolution, and counsels clients in the requirements of US and state environmental regulatory compliance and the development and implementation of environmental management systems. Her practice also includes representing clients in Superfund matters and the performance of voluntary cleanups in state programmes.

Maureen’s recent experiences include: advising Delta Air Lines about environmental diligence and negotiation of environmental provisions in numerous agreements governing the US$1 billion redevelopment of passenger terminals at JFK Airport; and representing a pharmaceutical corporation in negotiating the terms for the sale and partial leaseback of a 250-acre research and development facility in the Midwest, including how to structure environmental responsibility for the corporation’s ongoing operations at the facility during the leaseback period.
