There are several methodologies within each approach. Deciding which approach to use is fact sensitive. Each valuation is unique.<br /> <br /> Register today to hear some of the state's leading accountants, judges and attorneys shed light on the nuances of business valuations through a discussion of different valuations scenarios that are frequently encountered in chancery, family and business disputes. Our expert panel will also bring you up-to-date about the latest developments in this area, including a discussion about holding in the recent New Jersey Supreme Court case, I.E. Test, LLC v.

Two New Jersey proposals were selected as winners: RBD Meadowlands was awarded $150 million to design and construct a solution that will reduce flooding risks and enhance resiliency in the area near Little Ferry, Teterboro, Moonachie, and Carlstadt, and RBD Hudson River was awarded $230 million to reduce frequent flooding due to storm surge, high tide, and heavy rainfall in Hoboken, Weehawken, and Jersey City. We will provide in-depth reviews of these critical and innovative projects. We will also specifically discuss the unique zoning and environmental permitting issues associated with RBD Meadowlands, the incorporation of RBD and other resiliency concepts into redevelopment plans and redevelopment agreements, and the public and private sources of funding for resiliency projects (including green bonds, RBD-style programs and the HUD Community Development Block Grant program). Finally, we will review resiliency efforts and initiatives in southern NJ municipalities such as Atlantic City and Wildwood.<br /> <br /> Click <a href="">here</a> to register for the convention.&nbsp;</p> Klein is participating on the NJ LLC Potpourri Panel at the NJSBA Annual Convention May 2017Events<p>Wendy Klein is participating on the NJ LLC Potpourri Panel, <em>Business Law Section</em>.<br /> <br /> A panel of lawyers and judges discuss topics of interest to transactional attorneys and business litigators relating to NJ LLCs.<br /> <br /> <strong>Event Details:</strong><br /> Borgata Hotel Casino &amp; Spa, Atlantic City<br /> 1 Borgata Way Atlantic City, NJ 08401-1946<br /> Earn up to 16 CLE credits in 3 days.<br /> Seminars by <a href="">track</a>.<br /> Register <a href="">here</a>.&nbsp;<br type="_moz" /> &nbsp;</p>
