Portland and Augusta, ME and Manchester, NH  –N. Joel Moser, a shareholder at Bernstein Shur, was chosen to lecture at the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) Preparation and Trial of the Property Tax Appeal Seminar in Chapel Hill, NC on June 7 and 8.

Moser’s presentation focused on how to prepare, defend, and manage large appeals of property tax assessments.  By bringing life to abstract concepts through real-world case studies, Moser’s presentation helped ensure that municipal assessors and taxpayers are prepared to tackle the unique challenges of large appeals head on and manage a team of professionals to ensure a successful result. The seminar is a two-day training for attorneys, assessors, and appraisal personnel who want to better prepare for appeals. The topics focused on trial ethics, depositions, preparing the assessment mega case, review appraisers and rebuttal witnesses, and trial mechanics.

Moser’s speaking engagement builds upon his expanded thought leadership role in the industry, including work with IAAO’s national task force on contracting for assessing services, the Maine Association of Assessing Officers, and as chair of Bernstein Shur’s Property Tax and Valuation Team.

Moser is a member of the firm’s Energy Practice Group and the Municipal and Governmental Services Practice Group, and chairs the firm’s Property Tax & Valuation Team, where he assists public and private clients with assessment appeals, tax collection, and current land use programs, as well as analysis and modeling of local property tax obligations. Moser also represents generation facility developers and owners, competitive electricity suppliers, renewable energy companies, and utilities in regulatory compliance matters across New England. He resides in Lewiston, Maine with his wife, two young sons, and calculator.
