Building Security Should Not Create Owner Insecurity: Strategies for Minimizing Legal Risks

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 19, 2005 -- The Wall Street Transcript is pleased to host Daniel J. Ansell, Shareholder of Greenberg Traurig LLP, at its Building Security Conference on November 15 in New York City. Mr. Ansell will deliver a presentation entitled "Building Security Should Not Create Owner Insecurity: Strategies for Minimizing Legal Risks."

David Wanetick, Managing Director of The Wall Street Transcript, said, "We are delighted that Mr. Ansell will speak at our Building Security Conference. We are also pleased that we had the opportunity to conduct an exclusive interview with Mr. Ansell." During this recent interview, Mr. Ansell gave a preview of the questions he will address at the conference:

--  What obligation does a property owner have to provide security for its
    buildings?  Have these obligations changed in light of recent terrorist
    attacks?
    
--  How can a property owner minimize its potential liability while
    providing appropriate security?
    
--  What are the risks of commissioning security studies?  How can this
    risk be managed?
    
--  What rights do tenants have to challenge security measures implemented
    by a landlord?  How should a landlord respond to a tenant's demand for
    changes in security?  What steps should a landlord take to protect itself
    against tenant claims?
