Presenting At Green Legal Matters This Week in New Orleans

Here is a truth:  Green Building is not a fad. Between 2005 and 2008, the Green Building Construction industry has grown by 500%, from a $10 billion industry to a $49b industry.   McGraw-Hill Trends Driving Change Report's Green Outlook 2009 predicts the industry tripling between now and 2013, to a $140b market. If you're in construction, these numbers should get your attention.  Especially in this market. The unavoidable marriage between the green and construction industries is why our construction law practice has paid very close attention to green legal issues.   We operate two topic-specific blogs on the topic (Louisiana Green Law and Northwest Green Law), and I'm a LEED AP. The first ever conference focusing on the green industry's legal issues is taking place this week in New Orleans, LA, Green Legal Matters.  I'm very excited to take part in the conference by speaking at two programs: Thursday, 3pm - 4pm Agreements for Smart Building Certification and Green Litigation Risks Presenting with James D'Entremont, Phelps Dunbar Friday, 11am - 12pm LEEDigation:  The Impact of LEED 3.0, Litigation and Building Regulation Presenting with Christopher Hill, Law Office of Christoper Hill View all of the Green Legal Matters programs at this PDF link. I have Keynotes put together for the presentations. For the one on Friday with Chris Hill (check out his great construction law blog here:   Construction Law Musings), the presentation is available on my SlideShare account.  You can also view it right here: As can you for the one on Thursday with James d'Entremont:
