Mr Farer, a US environmental lawyer, will discuss the extent to which transactions in the real estate and business world in the US have become established as a key driver in assessing the degree to which company operations and real estate holdings are complaint with state and federal environmental requirements and standards, and in investigating and implementing corrective actions that must be taken. The discussion will include reference to the primary legislative and regulatory sources, the development and formalization of the environmental due diligence process, and latest trends.
