Parker Poe's Economic Development Team advises domestic and international companies on all aspects of economic development decisions. Corporate relocations and expansions create a lengthy list of legal, financial, and regulatory issues. We know how much controlling these and other matters can impact the immediate and ongoing success of your company.
Tax incentives often finalize a go or no-go decision. How employment and environmental regulations are addressed during site selection can impact later expansion. Corporate finance and construction agreements often determine whether or not a major move or expansion is ever started, or completed on time and within budget. Providing effective and practical counsel, Parker Poe advises clients on these and other economic development decisions so that management can have greater confidence in their decision-making, maintain control of projects and, ultimately, complete their developments on time and within budget.
We provide this comprehensive counsel to domestic and multinational clients, either directly or by supporting their site selection consultants. The capital investments range from the millions to hundreds-of-millions of dollars. Our clients range from automotive and chemical companies to pharmaceutical manufacturers and startup life sciences enterprises.
With all of our clients, we bring to bear our experience and customized service approach to help increase control and confidence in management decisions, while decreasing the time required to move from site selection to planning, building, and operating. We use proprietary planning techniques and tools to define our scope of services and to identify efficiencies and potential delays as a project moves forward.
