The drive to add business, job opportunities and a better way of life in towns, cities and states across the nation continues to fuel the intense competition for companies that are making decisions to relocate or improve their businesses.  Kilpatrick Townsend attorneys have been active in the incentives arena, negotiating lucrative agreements with state and local governments for companies in a wide range of industries.

Firm attorneys are well-positioned to assist companies seeking incentives and have particularly strong relationships in the Southeast. We understand not only how to leverage relationships but also how to coordinate the various, interrelated requirements necessary to take advantage of present and/or future incentives. In addition to in-depth experience in the state of North Carolina, we have also successfully worked with various cities, counties and agencies in the negotiation of incentives and on issues related to green or sustainable development.
