Alex Flachsbart, attorney in the firm’s Birmingham office and member of the Economic Development Incentives Practice, will lead a webinar on Opportunity Zones on July 10, 2018, with Retail Strategies. He will explain the newly enacted tax reform bill and discuss how it can benefit developers, business owners and local communities.
Enacted in December 2017, Opportunity Zones are a key piece of a new economic development program that offers incentives to developers who invest in historically low-income areas. Alex has been involved with the program since its inception and will draw from his experience to share strategies for real estate development, business investment and community impact.
Alex counsels governments, nonprofits, investors, lenders and developers on how to incentivize and finance community development. He regularly works with economic development professionals and local communities to structure strategies to attract private investment.
