EBC Massachusetts Program: Contaminated Property Buying/Selling Strategies Taught by the Experts – A Mock Transaction

November 5, 2014 @ 7:30 am – 10:30 am
Greenberg Traurig, LLP
1 International Place
Boston MA 02110

This EBC program will illustrate some of the nuances of contaminated property transactions in a MOCK transaction.  See how buyer and seller teams posture and strategize to complete a deal where multiple environmental issues {RECs as defined by the new ASTM 1527-13 standard] are discovered, explored, and negotiated.  Both teams will then debrief in a panel session to facilitate observations and questions from the audience.  Our MOCK buyer and seller teams are practicing experts in their fields of real estate development and law, who will lead us through a sometimes humorous, action packed role play.
