Firm News

Burr & Forman announces the firm was recently recognized as one of the "Best Economic Development Law Firms" in the South by Southern Business & Development. This list recognizes law firms that focus on economic development and are experienced in the related areas: real estate, tax, government relations, construction, environmental and incentive packages.

Burr & Forman has a long history of dealing with economic development, starting with the firm's manufacturing experience back in the early 1900's when founding partner, Walker Percy, represented Tennessee Coal and Iron (now U.S. Steel Corporation) in an antitrust case. Over the years Burr's manufacturing industry experience has evolved to include economic development and state and local tax incentives, site selection, plant operations and infrastructure, employment, union avoidance, production equipment contracts, commercial contracts, mergers and acquisitions, financing, supply chain and logistics, and litigation and dispute resolution. The firm's unique manufacturing capabilities have played a critical role in attracting major economic development projects to locate and expand in the South, resulting in $20 billion in capital investment and the creation of more than 28,000 jobs.
