We have the depth, expertise, and an arsenal of experience to guide your project in being awarded the economic incentives that it needs.

Economic Development and Incentives in South Texas

Economic Development is a big umbrella with a multitude of options ranging from tax abatements to special districts, from reinvestment and enterprise zone designations to fee waivers. Whether its deciding what your project needs and warrants or making the end goal a reality, we are ready, willing, and able.

We recognize the importance of Economic Development and obtaining Incentives when it comes to various aspects of projects. Through our well-cultivated relationships with elected officials, key staff members and stakeholders throughout Texas, we can and will assist in any and all parts of the process to ensure our clients’ success.

But lobbying for an incentive package or creation of a Public/Private Financing District is not the only role we do and can play. Our team is thoroughly equipped in negotiating terms at the City and County levels, drafting necessary, legally binding documentation, preparing and carrying any applications to final approval, and working together with the municipality(ies) to get the deal done.
