Bill Harrington, General Counsel, oversees CREA’s legal department, which provides legal advice to Boards and Associations on a wide range of issues, including intellectual property, REALTOR® Code issues, interpretation of CREA’s Bylaws, Rules, and policies, and issues involving federal legislation. Our legal department also supports the Executive Office and the Board of Directors. No wonder Bill refers to CREA’s in-house counsel as the “Swiss Army knife of lawyers.” Celebrating his 20th year at CREA, Bill has seen it all and enjoys the variety and unpredictability of legal issues that come up. Interesting fact: To call Bill a fan of “The Who” is a bit of an understatement – he has seen them in concert 28 times!
