Roth, chair of the Environmental Practice Group at Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis LLP in Woodbridge, NJ, was a panel member addressing “Environmental Concerns in Real Estate Development” at the New Jersey State Bar Association Annual Meeting in Atlantic City in May. Mr. Roth was also recently re-elected one of the Directors of the Association’s Environmental Law Section.
