Economic development, incentives and grants

Local and state governments go to great lengths to court businesses for relocation and expansion. They offer everything from tax incentives to outright grants, all in an effort to strengthen the economic base. Competition is fierce, and businesses need advocates who can uncover the possibilities that may be available. 

Our attorneys have worked in a range of businesses and industries to help our clients with:

  • Tax credits and abatements
  • Machinery and equipment grants
  • Training grants
  • Low interest government loans
  • Tax increment financing agreements
  • Brownfield redevelopment funding
  • Major infrastructure funding
  • Research/technology park and other special-use developments
  • Public finance
  • Technology grants
  • Industry-specific grants
  • Annexation, rezoning and variances
  • Workforce assistance and funding
  • Community reinvestment areas and enterprise zones

We draw on our incentive negotiation experience and our knowledge of land use, public finance, tax and environmental law, among other areas, to develop incentive packages that serve both the public good and our clients' business goals.
