Peter Fass, partner at Proskauer Rose, LLP, joined REIT.com for a video interview during REITWise 2015: NAREIT’s Law, Accounting and Finance Conference held in Phoenix.

“There’s a lot of talk about how it’s going to affect sales. Who’s going to make the changes? Will it reduce fees to broker-dealers? We shall see,” he said.
