October 08, 2018

Adams and Reese is pleased to announce the firm has been included in Southern Business and Development’s third edition of “The South’s Best Economic Development Law Firms.” The firm was recognized for its economic development-related work in real estate, tax, construction and environmental law, as well as with government relations and incentive packages.

The guide lists regional legal service providers in the South’s 14 states. The previous edition of the guide, published in 2012, recognized Adams and Reese for its work in economic development in states throughout the southeast.

“We are proud to receive this recognition for our economic development work. Law firms play a significant role in getting deals done. In helping our public and private clients recruit and develop projects, we get to see the tangible results of our work. As the manufacturing and tech sectors continue to grow in the region, we continue to see renewed domestic and foreign-direct investment. Helping improve the quality of life and expanding the job options in the communities in which we live truly define the focus of our economic development practice team. Our multidisciplinary team is focused on building a strong future for our clients throughout the Southeast into the future and continuing our leadership in this area,” said Britton Bonner, a partner who heads Adams and Reese’s firmwide Economic Development practice.

In addition to recognition in this special publication, Adams and Reese was recognized in Southern Business and Development’s 2015 Best of Economic Development in Louisiana as a “Best Economic Development Law Firm.”

Adams and Reese represents economic development clients in public-private partnerships for airports, infrastructure and public transit projects, commercial developments, health care, oil and gas, energy, higher education, utilities, port facilities, entertainment and recreation, industrial, manufacturing, distribution and logistics, urban and community development projects and transportation and tribal developments, among others.

Working in collaboration with the firm’s Government Relations team, Adams and Reese’s economic development attorneys and advisors closely monitor issues and lobby lawmakers for more favorable tax environments and vehicles for business development for clients in the Southeast.
