ROSELAND, N.J./September 27, 2007 -- Patrick J. McAuley will speak on urban redevelopment and eminent domain. The panel session, "Navigating Eminent Domain and Urban Redevelopment Issues in the New Jersey Market," will address how to successfully navigate the unsure waters surrounding eminent domain issues, and will explain the distinction between a site that is "blighted" and one that is "underutilized."

This panel discussion is part of the Sixth Annual RealShare New Jersey Conference produced by Real Estate New Jersey which will take place Thursday, October 4, 2007 at the Teaneck Marriott Glenpointe. The panel will start at 9:50 a.m.

Patrick McAuley joined Connell Foley in 1982 and is a distinguished member of our Real Estate and Land Use practice group. He is also recognized for his expertise in the law of condemnation. Mr. McAuley served as outside General Counsel to the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) for approximately seven years. During that time, among other things, he was charged with the responsibility of oversight over all acquisitions by the CRDA for redevelopment purposes, including several hundred different sites acquired through the use of the power of eminent domain for various types of commercial, industrial, residential, and recreational facilities, and for infrastructure.

Mr. McAuley has also worked with various other regulatory state and local agencies as well as private developers in connection with real estate development and financing of such development. He has assisted in obtaining subdivision, site plan and related permits and approvals for projects of nearly every size and character including retail and office uses, hotels, a baseball stadium, an aquarium, housing projects, and others in various counties throughout the state.
