Ulmer Attorneys to Participate in the 40th Annual Real Estate Law Institute

Ulmer and Berne LLP is proud to announce that three of its attorneys will participate in the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association’s 40th Annual Real Estate Law Institute on November 8-9. This two-day conference allows attendees to hear from legal and industry experts and provides advanced programming in real estate law.

“We are very pleased that Ulmer attorneys will be sharing their knowledge at the Real Estate Law Institute,” said Mary Forbes Lovett, Chair of Ulmer’s Real Estate Practice Group. “The Institute is a fantastic way for members of the Cleveland real estate community to connect and learn about new perspectives and changes in the industry, and we are proud that our members have been asked to participate in such a valuable event.”

Partner Lori Pittman Haas, who serves on the Institute’s Planning Committee, will participate in a panel entitled, “Current Developments,” which will examine real estate cases of interest and relevance decided over the last year. In preparation for the Institute, the three members of this panel read 322 cases—over 100 cases each—to evaluate current developments in real estate law.

Partner Alan W. Scheufler will serve on a panel moderated by Counsel Kristin W. Boose, who also serves as First Vice Chair of the Institute. This panel, entitled, “Mercy Mercy Me, We Need Money: Alternative Financing Sources and Incentives,” will discuss the sources of monies and non-traditional financing available through state and federal programs, and cost recovery for contaminated real property involving insurance recovery and direct action against responsible parties.

Haas, Scheufler, and Boose have wide-ranging experience representing a variety of clients in the real estate industry. Haas, who serves as Vice Chair of Ulmer’s Real Estate Practice Group, focuses her practice on the resolution of complex real estate issues and represents buyers and sellers in the acquisition, disposition, and development of commercial properties.
