Scott Gerber

Hello all. My name is Scott Gerber, Senior Real Estate Counsel at Kimco. I have been practicing real estate law for almost 19 years, 15 of which I've spent at Kimco. I have enjoyed seeing Kimco's tremendous growth during those years, and meeting the challenges that have come with it. I handle all aspects of retail leasing, acquisitions, and sales for our U.S. portfolio, as well as manage our team of lawyers and paralegals who are responsible for drafting and negotiating most of our lease documents throughout the country. I also oversee Kimco's U.S. environmental due diligence, investigation, and remediation projects. Before joining Kimco, I was an associate at a large Long Island commercial real estate firm. I am admitted to the New York and New Jersey Bars and belong to the New York State and American Bar Associations. I've lived here my entire life, departing only to attend school -- Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pa., for my bachelor's degree in communications and business administration, and Brooklyn Law School in Brooklyn Heights for my J.D. I love spending time with my family, and I enjoy skiing, tennis, and golf (handicap too high to mention here). I manage my daughter's softball team every spring. And although it's difficult to admit these days, I am a die-hard Mets fan. But as they say, hope springs eternal.

Dry cleaners are under increasing pressure to eliminate their use of perchloroethylene. Known as “perc” for short, the chemical has been used by nearly all dry cleaners since the 1930s.… Read More
