Realizing the immense potential for communities and investors throughout Florida, Becker has launched a multidisciplinary Opportunity Zone Practice. The Becker team provides a full spectrum of cross-practice services to assist public entities, developers and investors in understanding what is involved in the investment process and how to implement strategies for participation in the program.
8,761 communities across the U.S. have been designated as Opportunity Zones, including 427 sites in Florida.
To operate successfully in this space requires a cross-practice, multifaceted approach to navigating the myriad of policy, logistical, legal, and regulatory hurdles that may arise. Becker is particularly adept at educating entities on the development of investable projects; advising on regulatory considerations; providing counsel to public clients on complimentary funding mechanisms; and providing insight, experience and contacts to assist government, private businesses, and other entities seeking to partner on public facilities projects.
Becker’s experienced, multi-disciplined team of government policy, real estate, construction, public-private partnership (P3), corporate, and estate planning professionals collaborate seamlessly to advise and educate clients about the Program, evaluate whether it is consistent with client goals, address legal and regulatory challenges, and help execute program engagement.
