A leading authority on New Jersey’s Industrial Site Recovery Act, David Farer ’75 will give a seminar March 18 on the latest developments in ISRA law and the state’s accelerating brownfield program on behalf of the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education. His recently completed fifth edition of the ISRA Compliance manual will be introduced during the seminar at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick.

A partner and environmental department chair at Farer Fersko, Westfield, N.J., Farer’s practice concentrates on counseling and guiding clients on the impact of environmental law on real estate and business transactions around the nation, and cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated properties. He has written extensively on these issues and lectures nationally for the American Law Institute-American Bar Association and other organizations.

Last year, Farer joined speakers that included Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and senior judges of the U.S. Courts of Appeal in giving a talk on U.S. environmental issues at a three-day international law symposium in London. Farer also participated in an insurance trends session, where he spoke on the use of new environmental insurance products for brownfields, and on a bankruptcy issues panel, where he addressed environmental claims.

Farer is the author of ISRA Compliance: Environmental Issues in Transactions and Underground Storage Tank Law. He is on the Board of Advisers of Toxics Law Reporter and Real Estate/Environmental Liability News.

A history and music graduate, Farer earned a J.D. at Boston University.
