Who's that in the mirror? What Real Estate Developers and their Legal Counsel have in Common . . . and what makes them different
Featuring Guest Speaker
Michael A. Voccola '97
Corporate Vice President and Associate General Counsel, Procaccianti Companies, Inc.
Far too few people understand and appreciate the complexities of real estate development and the critical role that a lawyer plays in bringing together the diverse aspects involved. Major developers around the world depend on qualified and knowledgeable lawyers to pull together aspects of land use, zoning, variances, lease negotiations, financing and more. A good lawyer, with proper latitude, is the ringmaster among engineers, architects, bankers, tenants and others and brings a true “value-add” to the deal. Michael A. Voccola '97, Corporate Vice President and Associate General Counsel of Procaccianti Companies, Inc., lives this complex role as counsel for the second largest private hotel owner and operator in the United States. Come prepared to engage with a fascinating deal. You will receive a simple list of facts in advance of the event.
