About Perdue Law

Perdue Law is an innovative, full service corporate law firm focused on economic development, government, real estate and international trade. We work with a consortium of former big firm attorneys who leverage our combined knowledge, relationships and experience to deliver exceptional legal service around the world. We have abandoned the traditional law firm model—a pyramidal structure built on billed hours and high rates unaligned with consumer expectations—in favor of investments in technology and service delivery models that meld legal, IT and process expertise.

Our core practice helps businesses negotiate government incentives for projects that involve job creation and capital expenditures. We use a multi-disciplinary approach that combines expertise in real estate, government, international trade, corporate structures and tax. Typical assignments include: identifying and evaluating sites in multiple states; negotiating and documenting discretionary and statutory incentives; providing land use and other comprehensive real estate expertise; assessing environmental impacts; analyzing comparative tax impacts; negotiating utility rates and other services contracts; and, lobbying government and regulatory agencies.

Real Estate

Real Estate

Our real estate practice is a natural extension of our economic development practice. It connects developers, builders, lenders, investors and users with the legal support necessary to execute real estate deals. We have participated in and advised on all aspects of the large project life cycle, including: RFP preparation and response; land use and entitlement proceedings; site selection and permitting; environmental due diligence; project construction and operation; privatization of state-owned assets; grant negotiations; and, equity placements and financings. In addition to legal expertise, our team includes considerable brokerage experience at some of the world’s top commercial real estate firms.

Government Relations

Our government relations practice handles interactions of all types at the local, state and federal level throughout the United States. We are proficient in both executive and legislative branch work; however, we are at our best employing top down executive branch approaches. While typical assignments involve negotiating job creation and capital expenditure incentives, other assignments include: legislative and executive branch lobbying; contract procurement; administrative hearings; good will building; and, regulatory compliance. Additionally, we have worked with US companies on matters involving foreign governments around the world and have significant experience in China, Southeast Asia and India.

In some instances, we will act as a virtual general counsel with front line responsibility for all local legal affairs.
