Extensive liabilities associated with Superfund, various environmental laws and toxic tort suits have increasingly put sellers, purchasers and lenders in a position where they must attempt to define and allocate liabilities when transferring assets and transacting loans. Similarly, securities and other financial regulations require that such liabilities be assessed and disclosed in a variety of contexts.
