Spencer Fane Attorneys Participate in SIOR Development Day

Attorneys from Spencer Fane’s Real Estate and Environmental teams exhibited Thursday 9/24 at SIOR Development Day, hosted by the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors.

Kansas City’s largest commercial real estate event brought together architects, engineers, real estate developers, owners, lenders and financial services providers, economic development officials, municipalities, brokers and contractors, and title companies. Spencer Fane attorneys Rita D’Agostino, Jaclyn Maloney, and Andrew Brought joined over 1,000 attendees to discuss real estate and environmental topics.

Rita D’Agostino, former general counsel for a large real estate developer, assists small to large developers, land owners, REITs, construction companies, franchisors(ees) and municipalities in resolving a wide variety of complex commercial real estate and business issues including leasing, development, public law, governmental relations, financing, risk management, property management, and construction for municipalities, developers, landlords, tenants, franchisees, franchisors and lenders.

Jackie Maloney represents real estate developers throughout the entire life cycle of their housing and commercial development projects. She structures, implements and closes real estate transactions as well as obtains economic development incentives and zoning approvals. As the single point of contact on real estate deals, Jackie can continually assess project risks as well as maintain a big-picture outlook in order to reach and exceed her clients’ goals.

Andrew Brought, who was recently published in SIOR Professional Report, has extensive experience with contaminated site redevelopment and the cleanup and reuse of legacy/Brownfield sites. He works with property owners, developers, and financial institutions in achieving their transactional goals through voluntary cleanup programs, the use of institutional controls and related risk-based cleanups, or by managing risk through other mechanisms such as contractual obligations and insurance.
