New York Partner Phil Karmel will present at the Practising Law Institute’s 21st Annual Commercial Real Estate Institute, Nov. 19 in New York City. The two-day CLE program will bring together top legal professionals in commercial real estate from around the country to review recent developments in multiple areas of real estate law, including environmental regulation changes that impact real estate development, insurance and disclosure requirements on federal and state levels. 

Karmel will address environmental law in real estate transactions, including environmental due diligence and deal issues, key issues under federal and state laws, urban environmental issues, baby NEPAs and the land use/environmental nexus, and the impact of climate change and sea level rise on real estate deals.

Karmel’s experience at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner includes matters arising under environmental review statutes (NEPA and SEQRA); Clean Air Act permitting, compliance and litigation; Superfund and oil spill litigation and counseling; pesticide-related personal injury and property damage litigation; zoning and other land use matters; government investigations; brownfields redevelopment; eminent domain litigation; and the environmental aspects of corporate and real estate transactions.
