Paul Josephson, partner at Duane Morris LLP, has been named senior advisor and transition counsel to Gov.-elect Phil Murphy’s transition committee, Transition2018.
Josephson most recently served Murphy as counsel to his campaign, Duane Morris said.
“Having represented the governor-elect since he announced his candidacy, it is an honor to now assist him in the transition effort,” said Josephson.
Josephson will assist the transition team in a review of more than 50 independent New Jersey authorities, including:
“The independent authorities play a key role in New Jersey infrastructure, economic development, and gaming policy. They are responsible for some of the most visible government projects and services that residents and businesses count on. I look forward to helping the governor-elect assume responsibility for them.”
Josephson previously served as chief counsel to the New Jersey Governor and as director of the division of law for the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General. He also served as chief of authorities for the governor.
He presently serves as New Jersey co-chair of the Regional Plan Association.
