About Jay S. Ruder
Jay was originally trained as a commercial litigator, handling a broad spectrum of matters concentrated on sophisticated mortgage lending, lease and contract disputes, but also including litigation over the ability of coop owners to resell their units as if they were condominiums and various lender liability issues.

In December 1985, when an imminent change in the Tax Code resulted in a tidal wave of real estate closings, Jay refocused his practice from litigation to transactional work. His practical experience, creativity and expertise is in demand by both lenders and borrowers in commercial real estate transactions. His clients include global, regional and local businesses and institutions, healthcare professionals, and individuals seeking to buy or sell property or form new business entities. His litigation background has enabled him to extend his real estate practice beyond the closing table and handle a variety of tax assessment, land use and condemnation cases as well. Jay’s training as a litigator has proved invaluable to clients by enabling him to negotiate and draft documents that are both understandable and enforceable. Should negotiations fail, he is well-equipped to evaluate and implement the most practical means of enforcing his client’s rights.

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act authorized each governor to designate certain census tracts as “Qualified Opportunity Zones” (“QOZs”). Taxpayers realizing capital gains after December 31, 2018 can invest the cash realized from those events in a Qualified Opportunity Fund (“QOF”) for investment in a QOZ and take advantage of tax benefits, including deferral and partial reduction of their initial capital gain and complete avoidance of capital gain upon sale of the qualified asset. These benefits are subject to a myriad of rules, and companies must still be wary of the evolving tax regulations and other guidance.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the implications of QO Fund for real estates and investors. Speakers will also discuss best practices to overcome challenges while maximizing opportunities.

Key topics included:

Qualified Opportunity Funds: An Overview
· Requirements and Tax Considerations
· Leveraging Opportunities
· Legal and Economic Risk Issues and Challenges
· 2019 Outlook
