2/28/20 – The upcoming Inside Self-Storage World Expo, the self-storage industry’s largest conference and tradeshow, will feature several events providing information on legal concerns that affect facility owners and operators.

The Advanced Legal Workshop, 1 to 5 p.m. on April 14, is designed to help owners and managers maintain compliance with federal, state and local laws. Taught by attorney Scott Zucker, partner at Weissmann Zucker Euster Morochnik & Garber P.C., the session will cover issues pertaining to property development and construction, employment, rental agreements, and tenant-insurance sales. Zucker will also discuss how to handle tenant claims, enforce a lien, and respond to government requests to search units. The workshop will answer questions about legal obligations and how to avoid liability. Access to the workshop can be purchased a la carte or via an All-Access Pass.
As part of the show’s Operations Track of education sessions on April 15, the seminar “You Might Need a Self-Storage Lawyer if…” will focus on instances in which operators should call an attorney. Presented by attorney Jeffrey Greenberger, partner at Greenberger & Brewer LLP, at 1 p.m., the session will address the most common situations in which the wrong course of action could unintentionally cause personal or company liability. Attendees will need to purchase a Seminar-Track Package to access this offering.
Greenberger will also host a Legal Q&A on April 16, 4:30 to 6 p.m. Open to all attendees, this annual event has been lengthened due to its popularity.
