Adams and Reese is pleased to announce economic development attorney Lodie V. Biggs has joined the firm’s Economic Development practice and Memphis office as a Partner.
Biggs’ background in economic development and tax work enables him to position his clients for success in efforts to grow their businesses. He helps clients navigate tax incentive packages and favorable property tax treatment (PILOTs), as well as other economic incentives.
With more than 20 years of experience in the field, Biggs has played a key role in the incentive packages for start-ups working in areas such as medical devices, life sciences, biodiesel and bioenergy. He also represents local governments as they shape and create their own incentive packages, which gives him a unique understanding of the PILOT process and economic development opportunities for business growth.
Outside his economic development practice, Biggs represents clients in real estate and tax law, assisting clients with commercial real estate transactions such as sales and purchases, leasing transactions, zoning and land use law. He also defends title companies in various claims.
Biggs is a 1999 graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law, where he was Notes Editor of the Virginia Law Review. He received his B.B.A., summa cum laude, from the University of Memphis in 1994.
