Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently signed a bill that is expected to have a major impact on international and out-of-state investment in Florida, including real estate sales, and on the banking industry. Gunster government affairs consultant Greg Black was tapped by Miami Today to weigh in on the new law. He was instrumental in the law’s passing through the Florida legislature, and believes it will safeguard everyone’s most precious commodity – time. “It helps small banks with economies of scale; now they can do three or four transactions in an hour rather than in the entire day,” said Black. He added that this reduces the worry of human error or transmitting documents to the clerk of courts – which will make international deals easier as well by eliminating the need for multiple trips to the U.S.
Black has worked as a governmental consultant in Tallahassee for nearly a decade and cultivated personal and professional relationships with elected officials, staff and colleagues. He is also licensed to practice law in the state of Florida. Black’s prior experience includes positions within the Florida Bankers Association, advising banks of all sizes on legislative and regulatory issues, and with a legislative and executive governmental advocacy firm.
