Jack Fersko, a partner in the firm’s Real Estate Department, will lecture and serve as moderator for a seminar on “Critical Issues in Drafting & Negotiating Office, Retail, Industrial & Ground Leases” to be presented by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (NJICLE) on December 12, 2013 at the Law Center in New Brunswick, NJ. The program is the latest in a longstanding series of seminars on transactional real estate issues which Mr. Fersko has been developing for NJICLE since the 1990s. He is also the editor of, and a contributor to, a two volume NJICLE treatise on “Commercial Real Estate Transactions in New Jersey.”
Mr. Fersko will join a panel of real estate attorneys in addressing a broad range of topics in the full-day program, which will feature an overview of key issues presented by individual panelists, followed by a series of panel discussions on issues including defaults and remedies, financing, and insurance.
Mr. Fersko’s legal services emphasize industrial and commercial real estate activities, sustainable development initiatives such as solar energy projects, urban redevelopment, financing, and the impact of environmental laws on commercial transactions. He has successfully negotiated many real estate agreements involving complex environmental transactional issues and related insurance agreements. He counsels clients on transactional issues and funding options related to green building and solar development and the impact of these initiatives on leases and other agreements, including the negotiation and drafting of Engineering, Procurement and Construction Agreements (EPC) and Power Purchase (PPA) Agreements.
