This Foley Executive Briefing Series program explored the “nuts and bolts” issues that can arise during construction projects intended to meet LEED certification requirements. Featuring insight from Foley business and litigation attorneys as well as representatives from a national REIT and a major construction company, this program addressed:

  • Developer experience in designing, delivering, and leasing green buildings
  • Practical, “on-the-ground” construction issues when building for LEED certification
  • Drafting contracts to minimize liability related to green construction
  • Potential consequences of failing to meet LEED certification and other green regulations

These and other related topics were addressed in an informal, interactive panel session led by Thomas I. Elkind, Foley IP Litigation Partner; Andrew R. Stern, Foley Real Estate Partner; Michael Cantalupa, Senior Vice President for Development at Boston Properties; and Thomas E. Perry, Managing Director of Shawmut Design & Construction's Engineering Services Division.

Green Construction — Avoiding the Black Holes of Environmentally Friendly Construction Techniques is part of the Foley Executive Briefing Series. Learn more about upcoming programs in the series at Foley.com/FEBS.
