DRI Toxic Torts and Environmental Law Committee
Attorney Alana E. Fortna interviews Christy McLean, a Managing Director of Alvarez & Marsal Dispute and Investigations, on the use of Value Assurance Programs (VAPs) in toxic tort and environmental matters in a Podcast for DRI’s Toxic Torts and Environmental Law Committee entitled “Finding Value in Value Assurance Programs.” VAPs are a tool used to address neighborhood concerns over a potential drop in property market value due to environmental issues or alleged nuisances, such as an environmental accident, environmental contamination, increased noise from industrial operations, or concerns related to a landfill expansion. VAPs are relevant to toxic tort matters, site remediation, environmental litigation, and disputes related to the installation of new industrial operations or the expansion of existing industrial operations.
