My legal career started in the land use litigation section at one of the top law firms in the Southeast where I was surrounded by brilliant legal minds. After a few years, I left the firm to join a boutique commercial real estate company to learn business fundamentals and the art of the deal. That company was sold to one of the largest real estate companies in the world. Mission complete, I returned to my previous law firm’s economic development practice to negotiate government grants tied to job creation and capital investment. Along the way I was hired by a consortium of Asian companies that sought to design, build, finance and operate major US infrastructure projects. That led me to opportunities to work all over the world on projects of all types. From there, Perdue Law was born.
