Business Incentives Practice
The shortest, clearest path to success.
LOCATION DECISIONS ARE VALUABLE.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Business Incentives Practice implements strategies for the development, expansion, consolidation or relocation of facilities. Your firm’s presence in a particular location has tremendous financial implications not only for your company but also for the local municipality and state. We create competition for that residency, unearthing financial opportunities through the procurement of local and state economic incentives. We identify, evaluate, and negotiate incentives such as cash grants, infrastructure
improvements, tax reductions, and job training. We evaluate local labor and area amenities to ensure that your business can be properly scaled. Our experience lives within all industries and sectors, with clients ranging in size from Global 2000 firms to individual owners, occupiers and developers.
Our goal is singular. Reduce your total real estate cost with the shortest, clearest path to financial success.
