Economic Development & Government Efficiency

See All Services Meet The Team


Leveraging experience as economic development officials, we provide legal and consulting services to government and to business. Our economic development team, in partnership with tax, real estate and corporate attorneys, offers clients counsel informed by years of experience. For businesses, understanding economic development initiatives can mean significant financial opportunities. We offer site selection services, financial incentive strategies and engagement, and ongoing compliance counsel. For government and economic development organizations, the team offers strategic planning, funding and policy assistance. Having served communities of all sizes, the team brings the appropriate focus on attraction/retention strategies, redevelopment strategies and implementation. For all clients, the team brings hands-on experience gained from prior government service and current representation of business and government clients. Working with both government and business clients gives us valuable perspective that aids us in providing the best possible service, regardless of the type of client we are serving.
We also offer government leaders hands-on experience to offer meaningful advice and workable solutions as they seek to deliver quality services at the lowest possible cost. Our government efficiency and cost containment team includes professionals who held senior leadership roles with some of the most innovative government leaders of the nation — including Mayor Cory Booker, Mayor Steve Goldsmith and Governor Mitch Daniels. These leaders led with a conviction that financial discipline and effective service delivery are necessary and achievable. With service in scores of cities, counties and states, the team brings years of experience with tools such as managed competition, gainsharing and asset monetization. Recognizing that tools and approaches must be deployed selectively in recognition of the specific situation, the team achieves cost savings and revenue enhancement in a manner consistent with the needs of the situation. With significant senior level government experience, the team understands that cost containment and service improvement strategies must be developed and deployed in consultation with multiple stakeholders. We have an action orientation. While we prepare reports, our goal is to identify and to implement workable strategies.
