McCarter is proud to kick off summer 2019 with exciting firm news: NJBIZ has named Joe Boccassini, Susan Feeney, Scott Kobler, and Dave Sorin to its Law Power 50 list for delivering outstanding results for clients in New Jersey. You can also tune in to the Growth Igniters Radio podcast to hear Dave Sorin discuss the urgent call for businesses, government, educators, and workers to come together and address new opportunities and challenges linked to AI and IoT as the technologies transform the global economy. McCarter has joined the Blockchain in Transport Alliance—the largest commercial blockchain consortium worldwide—to play a role in developing standards and educating the market, with Transportation & Logistics partner Ron Leibman leading the charge. We also partnered with Startupalooza to host CannInvest at our Boston office. The half-day conference focused on the emerging cannabis industry in Massachusetts, with sessions exploring the CBD marketplace, legal tactics, regulatory issues, financing strategy, and more.
We are also proud to work with clients and contacts who continuously enrich the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Drew McElroy, CEO of Transfix, won the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the New York region and advances to the national competition in November. Marc Betesh, CEO of Visual Lease, was named a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award in New Jersey. These prestigious business awards honor leaders of high-growth companies who are transforming the world through innovation, performance, and personal commitment. Aaron Price, CEO of the Northeast innovation platform Propelify, and Tom Wisniewski of leading East Coast venture fund Newark Venture Partners joined NJ Governor Phil Murphy and leaders in the entrepreneurial community for a press conference at the New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Makerspace to discuss how venture capital will continue to drive economic impact in Newark.
