Economic Development and Real Estate

Our Real Estate and Economic Development team guides clients through the new development or redevelopment process by helping to acquire real estate, assisting businesses to access appropriate state, regional and local agencies and economic development entities with respect to available economic development incentives and grants. Our team works to secure funding through federal and state tax credit programs to help clients get their project to completion.

Our lawyers are experienced in navigating the regulatory environment affecting the redevelopment of improved real estate or the development of unimproved land for multi-use commercial projects, shopping centers, industrial projects, and office parks. This requires an understanding and knowledge of all aspects of land use planning such as zoning, subdividing, annexation, eminent domain, environmental law, and applicable federal, state, and local permitting requirements.

We have worked with clients to secure funding through the New Markets Tax Credits federal program and have assisted in several projects that utilized the Community Revitalization Enhancement District (CReED) Tax Credits. Our team also has experience helping companies receive the Industrial Recovery Tax Credits (DINO tax credit) for projects that rehabilitated industrial facilities.
