With green development already filling the landscape, developers and building operators are looking for knowledgeable legal assistance. Toward that end, Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox LLP has begun forming a LEED-accredited team of professionals with the recent LEED accreditation of in-house technical consultant Michael Nines.

The accreditation is issued by the United States Green Building Council ("USGBC") to signify mastery of sustainable design and building practices. LEED stands for the USGBC's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a voluntary, consensus-based, market-driven building rating system based on existing proven technology. The LEED program evaluates environmental performance from a whole building perspective over a building’s life cycle, providing a definitive standard for what constitutes a "green" building.
