Raymond Headen will serve as a panelist for two Practising Law Institute (PLI) virtual seminars concerning Economic Development Law and Regulation. The one-hour CLE virtual seminars will air Sept. 13 and 17.
The Sept. 13 seminar will address Economic Development Law and Regulation: Corporate Site Location Projects. Headen and four additional panelists will address questions including the following:
- How has COVID-19 impacted corporate site location projects?
- What are examples of reshoring the manufacturing supply chain?
- Is the availability of real estate or a skilled workforce a larger issue for corporate site location projects?
- How will work from home issues impact corporate site location projects?
- What corporate site location decision has the largest impact?
The second seminar, released on Sept. 17, will address Economic Development Law and Regulation: Incentives. Headen and the panelists will address questions including the following:
- What type of economic development incentives are used to retain and attract companies?
- What role do economic development incentives play in a corporate site location decision?
- Have economic development incentives adapted to the work from home movement?
- What advice would you give companies seeking economic development incentives from communities and states?
- Will economic development incentives move away from the requirements of job creation and shift to payroll and capital investment creation as automation, artificial intelligence, and other technologies create fewer, higher wage jobs?
