7/13/2015

Adams and Reese attorney James Moffett has been accepted into the 2015 Political Leadership Boot Camp of the Congressional Black Caucus Leadership Institute.

The seven-day intensive leadership development program will take place July 19-25, and is designed to help participants who want to gain the expertise to become the leaders, strategists, and key staff members who will conduct successful candidate and issue campaigns or lead public and private sector policy work. This non-partisan educational program is offered each summer in the national capital area of Washington, DC. The first CBCI Boot Camp was held in 2002, and through the years, has graduated more than 500 members.

At Adams and Reese, Moffett is an Associate in the firm’s New Orleans office and a member of the Transactions Practice Group. Practicing law since 2009, he focuses his practice on public finance law, economic development and governmental relations, in which he assists local governments, political subdivisions, and private companies access the capital markets through the execution of Tax Exempt and Taxable Bond transactions, as well as New Market Tax Credit (NMTC) transactions.

Prior to joining Adams and Reese, Moffett was an economic developer, focusing on the attraction and retention of private sector companies throughout the southeastern region of Louisiana, and led job creation efforts within advanced manufacturing, energy, international trade, digital media, biosciences, and emerging environmental industries.

Moffett was recently named to the Greater New Orleans, Inc. NextGen Council (NGC) for a two-year term. The NGC, composed of the “next generation” of business and community leaders in the region, is an initiative designed to introduce new leadership into GNO, Inc. and develop the future leaders of Greater New Orleans.
