Abe Schear in Biznow Atlanta

AGG Partner Abe J. Schear is mentioned in the May 11, 2011, edition of Biznow Atlanta in an article titled, “Retail Fights…And Milan.” The article details Mr. Schear’s recent trip to Milan, Italy, to give a presentation at a meeting of the International Association of Young Lawyers. His speech dealt largely with how America is behind many European countries regarding consistent environmental regulations or federal standards. “There is no one standard,” Abe says. “You basically have jurisdictional disputes.” He says that it is especially noticeable in retail real estate, where environmental and green requirements that add costs in one county may not exist in a neighboring county.
