Foley Hoag Hosts Roundtable Discussion on Interested Third Party Mechanism

May 14, 2019

On May 13, 2019, Foley Hoag hosted over 20 individuals at a roundtable discussion in its Paris office regarding the interested third party (tiers demandeur) mechanism. The event was organized and facilitated by partner Carine Le Roy-Gleizes and associate Pauline Leddet-Troadec. Sandrine Hostyn, head of Real Estate services at ENGIE in Paris, was a special guest speaker.

The interested third party mechanism, set up in 2015 in application of the ALUR law, allows an industrial company to transfer to a third party its administrative obligations relating to the clean-up of its former classified installations. Participants, who mainly included operations managers, were able to share feedback and practical advice on the recent system.

Le Roy-Gleizes has broad experience in environmental law. She works on both litigation and advisory matters having to do with environmental regulations regarding regulated facilities, industrial risks, waste management, water or air impacts, soil and groundwater contamination, health and safety-related issues, sustainable development and chemical products.

Leddet-Troadec works on both litigation and advisory matters having to do with environmental regulations. She focuses on matters regarding industrial environmental law including classified facilities, waste management, technological risk prevention plans (French “PPRT” regulations) and contaminated sites and soils.
