Chris Murphy Co-Authors Financial Incentives Chapter of NJICLE Treatise “Commercial Real Estate Transactions in New Jersey”

Murphy Partners attorney, Chris Murphy, co-authors Financial Incentives chapter of the recently-published “Commercial Real Estate Transactions in New Jersey” (2019, 4th Edition), published by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education, a division of the New Jersey State Bar Association.

This 3 volume treatise is a comprehensive "solution-based" resource manual for attorneys practicing commercial real estate in New Jersey. The "blue-ribbon" panel of contributing authors provides the theory to address a wide range of commonly confronted transactional issues, and then follows with practical solutions.

The Financial Incentives chapter covers a wide range of federal, state, and local incentive programs, including state-based corporate relocation and retention incentives, developer-focused incentives at the state and local levels, workforce training grants, federal incentives, including the newly-enacted Opportunity Zone Program, and other forms of non-dilutive financing.
