Kutak Rock’s extensive experience with the myriad federal statutes, executive orders, rules, regulations and policies governing federal real property disposal, and our understanding of the complex military base-reuse process, are essential elements of the successful community base reuse plan. We have worked with numerous elected officials, city attorneys, planners, engineers, utility officials, financial managers and redevelopment experts associated with military base reuse and other redevelopment projects to provide the legal and environmental expertise necessary to assure that issues of reuse planning, conveyance, interim leasing, leaseback provisions, environmental indemnity, environmental risk allocation, potential liability and financing are integrated and fully addressed as the reuse and acquisition plans are developed and implemented. In addition to reuse planning, Kutak Rock’s Federal Practice and National Security Group counsels municipalities, states and reuse authorities acquiring former military property through leases, economic development conveyances (transfer at a discounted price for use of the property for economic development), public benefit conveyances (transfer to public entities for public use with little or no outlay of community resources for parks, roads, airports, ports, utilities, hospitals, etc.), negotiated sales and public bids.
