Litigation Partner Participates in Webinar re 2017 Real Estate and Economic Policy Research Consortium Business Survey
Riker Danzig recently helped fund a New Jersey economic study and analysis culminating in a webinar on June 27, 2017, entitled, “Promoting Positive Change for New Jersey's Economy: Presentation and Discussion of the 2017 Real Estate and Economic Policy Research Consortium Business Survey.” Partner Frank Vitolo participated on the webinar panel which discussed the findings from the longitudinal survey of New Jersey business leaders. The goal of the study was to aid in the development of policy recommendations to support stronger growth economy within New Jersey and the Northeast region. Rutgers University’s Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy Dean James W. Hughes and Marc D. Weiner, associate research professor, conducted the spring 2017 survey of New Jersey business leaders to identify essential economic indicators and market trends and explore how demographic changes are affecting business practices in New Jersey.
Recognizing that “data drives change,” the findings of the study and insights from the panel discussion will be used to engage with policy makers, state agencies, and key trade associations to help improve New Jersey’s business climate, retain existing in-state companies, and attract out-of-state companies in the process of expansion and/or relocation.
