    Jeffrey M. Casaletto, a Member of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., presented “Real Estate Due Diligence-Risk and Liability” with Chemmie Sokolic of Whitman at the Construction & Management Citywide B2B Expo.  The presentation was at The Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus last month.

    The presentation covered due diligence activities for those interested in buying, selling, or developing real estate, with a focus on federal and state regulatory environmental concerns. The discussion shed light on important due diligence issues, including why due diligence is critical, when and how due diligence is accomplished, and the scope of due diligence.

    A resident of Raritan Township, Casaletto concentrates his practice on environmental law.  He represents and counsels clients in a wide range of industries, including commercial and residential developers, chemical and industrial manufacturers, and commercial business owners.  He maintains a results-oriented approach to each environmental issue to achieve the client’s goals and objectives.  Casaletto assists clients in resolving issues related to site remediation, due diligence, solid and hazardous waste disposal, solid waste utilities, regulatory compliance, permitting, Brownfields redevelopment, and cleanup cost recovery.  He also has experience handling matters involving CERCLA, RCRA, EPCRA, and OPA.  He has negotiated removal orders, EPCRA/OPA settlements, and cost recovery for removal and remedial actions.

    Prior to joining Norris McLaughlin, Casaletto was Assistant Regional Counsel and the 2002 Michael F. Vaccaro Honors Fellowship Attorney at the U.S. EPA Region III, where he focused on Superfund matters.

    During his term as an elected councilman for the Borough of Stockton, he was appointed to the Stockton Planning Board as Council Liaison and to several committees for the community of Stockton, including finance, personnel, and water and sewer.

    Casaletto earned his J.D. from The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, formerly known as Pace Law School, cum laude, and his M. Eng. degree in Environmental Engineering and B.S. in Civil Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University.
