We put our unique expertise, deep resources, and vast experience to work for you to maximize your possibilities and bring your opportunities to life. We have experts in location strategies; economic development; negotiation and ongoing management of tax credits and incentives; audit work; tax planning and strategies, including business personal property; and more.

A deal is only as solid as the foundation it’s built upon. We help clients get their projects off to a solid start. We’ll show you the way, by thinking differently, boldly, and clearly. We bring to the table our long-standing relationships with key real estate attorneys, bankers, and governmental entities, which enables us to provide the right resources – right away. We use our financial modeling tools to develop strategies to maximize your investment while minimizing your risk. Our approach is to work through a series of “what-if” scenarios that factor in all aspects of your project.   


Having a plan is one thing; taking it to fruition is another. This is the time to make sure that what you’ve modeled and planned for is actually playing out. But the truth is that during the development phase, things will change – and so must your plan. With every change, it’s important to monitor the implications on incentives, budgets, projections, and other variables. Our suite of Development Plan Services include:
