May 3, 2019
Phoenix, AZ (May 3, 2019) – Jennings, Strouss & Salmon, P.L.C., a leading Phoenix-based law firm, is pleased to announce that Christopher J. Rogers will present as a panelist at the Opportunity Zone Expo being held at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 9-10, 2019. The Expo is the largest Opportunity Zone event in the country. Rogers, a corporate, securities, and real estate attorney at Jennings Strouss with substantial experience advising on opportunity zones and opportunity funds, will discuss “The Qualified Crowd: Knowing which businesses are OZ eligible while pinpointing trends.”
In 2018, the U.S. Congress created a provision under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in 2017 that offered tax incentives to encourage investment low-income or underserved communities. The governors of each state proposed designated Opportunity Zones. Many investors will take advantage of this program before the end of 2019.
“I am excited to speak at the Opportunity Zone Expo and offer important insights about the extraordinary potential, and subtle risks, of this groundbreaking investment incentive,” said Rogers, “This timely event is going to be a great chance to share some real experience advising opportunity funds over the last year - and to present alongside some amazing speakers!”
The event will host keynote speakers Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and U.S. Senator Rand Paul, together with over one hundred distinguished panelists, to share insight about economic development in Opportunity Zones. Hundreds of investors, Opportunity Zone fund managers, developers, attorneys, finance/accounting professionals, and service providers will be focused on facilitating qualified opportunity funds. Jennings Strouss is also proud to be a sponsor of the Expo.
