    NJ Poised to Be the Next Viable Venue for International Family Businesses

    In an increasingly interconnected world, New Jersey is poised to become a center of international trade and dispute resolution of business specific conflict. New Jersey recently passed legislation entitled the International Arbitration, Mediation and Conciliation Act, which makes mediated settlements binding as if they were judgements of the court. New Jersey is one of only six states in the country to pass such a law.

    Opening remarks will be made by Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, NJCU President Sue Henderson, and Choose New Jersey President and CEO Michele Brown. Three panel discussions will follow. The conference will conclude with remarks from State Senator Sandra B. Cunningham and a keynote discussion with State Senator Thomas H. Kean, Jr.

    The multidisciplinary event is sponsored by Morgan Stanley; Jersey City Department of Housing, Economic Development & Commerce; Connell Foley, LLP; Genova Burns attorneys at law; the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce, Withum Audit Tax Advisory, the law offices of Berkowitz Lichtstein, Garibaldi American Inn of Court, and New Jersey State Bar Association.

    The program is ideal for business-minded individuals such as accountants and tax advisors, attorneys, estate planners, wealth managers, mediators, and those who are involved in small to mid-sized businesses located within the State of New Jersey. The diverse speakers will provide valuable information and networking opportunities that will allow one to grow business and client base.

    The cost per person for admission to Redefining Risk for Family Businesses is $65.00. Click here to register and reserve your place at the program.
