Burr Recognized as One of the Top Economic Development Firms in the Southern Region
Burr & Forman is pleased to announce that the firm has been named one of "The South's Best Economic Development Law Firms" by Southern Business and Development magazine.
"The South's Best Economic Development Law Firms" highlights law firms with multidisciplinary economic development practices encompassing fields including real estate, tax, government relations, construction, environmental, and incentive packages.
"We are incredibly proud to have been recognized as one of the South's top economic development law firms. This honor reflects the commitment of our team and the long-standing trust and confidence our clients have in our ability to help them achieve their goals and succeed in their respective industries," said Greg Canfield, Managing Director of Economic Development. "We are thrilled to remain at the forefront of growth opportunities in the Southeast region and beyond."
Burr & Forman has a long history of dealing with economic development, starting with the firm's manufacturing experience back in the early 1900s 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.
Our unique manufacturing capabilities have played a critical role in attracting major economic development projects to locate and expand in the South, resulting in over $35+ billion in capital investment and the creation of more than 38,000 jobs.
Partner Lee Thuston and Managing Director of Economic Development Greg Canfield lead Burr's Economic Development team.
