University of San Diego Hosts Real Estate Risk Management Seminar

February 24, 2006

The University of San Diego’s Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate will hold a free seminar in risk management Monday, Feb. 27 in USD’s Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice. The event begins with a reception at 6:30 p.m. followed by the program from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

The seminar will explore the risks associated with real estate investments, including those from natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina, and their effects on local real estate. Topics such as avoiding losses and liabilities in real estate, managing risks in real estate acquisition, investment and development, as well as obtaining the right insurance and dealing with claims, will be included in the discussion.

The event was prompted by the experiences of one of this year’s MSRE students, Justin Goldblatt, whose family was displaced by Katrina.

Justin’s father, Michael Goldblatt, associate general counsel of Tidewater Inc., a New Orleans-based company that operates a fleet of vessels serving the petroleum industry, will moderate the discussion. The panel of speakers includes Michael Armstrong, general counsel for Barratt American Inc.; Robert Buell, senior partner at Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps; David Dolnick, risk manager for Brady Companies; and Susan Rykowski, vice president of Old Republic Title Co.
