Our Economic Incentives for Development Services
Womble Bond Dickinson’s Economic Development team works with domestic and international companies seeking to expand or relocate operations primarily in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic US, with a focus on North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. We advise these companies from the earliest stages of expansion and relocation (before the real estate is purchased) to the end of the deal, long past the point when the shovel hits the ground.
We negotiate incentive packages of varying needs and sizes, and we draft all related documentation for Fee-in-Lieu of Tax Agreements, state grants, job tax credits, job development credits, utility grants and many other economic development incentives and grants.
Clients can expect seamless service throughout the life of the deal. We foster long-term relationships with clients, with a focus on their overall business strategy. We create custom solutions, rather than off-the-shelf form contracts, to ensure that clients’ interests are represented in economic development transactions.

- Economic development incentives
- Real estate
- Land use and siting procedures
- Corporate finance
