This CLE program will review the registration and reporting requirements imposed by the Philadelphia Lobbying Ordinance and Regulations, including updates on clarifying advisory opinions and guidance issued by the Board of Ethics.
Panelists will focus on what real estate lawyers and their developer clients need to know lobbying in Philadelphia, including what contacts with the City are covered or what are exempt. Join your colleagues in the Real Property Section to hear an examination of what activities may be defined as lobbying, any exceptions to the ordinance and how it may affect the day-to-day dealings with the City of Philadelphia.
Lunch and registration will begin at 11:30 a.m. and the program will run from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

New Jersey Redevelopment Authority Training Institute Visits Philly: Attracting and Negotiating with Equity Investors
Equity has become a more essential source of capital for residential and commercial development projects and developers are forced to contribute more equity capital in development projects. Since the recent economic crisis, most projects will not support and lenders will not allow more than 80 percent, and sometimes 60 – 70 percent of debt financing in the deal. So how do you attract the equity capital after you have exhausted all debt financing alternatives? The first step in attracting equity capital is “penciling out” the project to know what you have to work with, then structuring and negotiating a suitable partnership. Our workshop leader will be George Vallone, President of the Hoboken Brownstone Company. Seats are limited.
Key learning objectives:
*Introduce how to determine what is potentially available for an equity investor;
*Explore the different types of projects and structures preferred by equity investors;
*Learn who are potential equity partners and where to find them;
*Discuss equity investors’ critical decision factors; and
*Understand how to best present an investment opportunity to an equity investor.
