Knox Law and Knox Law Public Strategies are pleased to announce the launch of a comprehensive Opportunity Zone and Fund consulting practice.
Knox Law has a 60-year history of representing local governments and businesses, advising on community, real estate and economic development projects, and advising individuals in estate planning matters. Knox Law Public Strategies was launched by the firm in 2014 to leverage that unique experience by providing counsel and advice on matters of public importance.
Knox Law Public Strategies is prepared to assist communities, developers and investors in understanding what it means to have an Opportunity Zone in their town, as well as how to capitalize on the investment opportunity. While the country waits for Treasury to release regulations governing the operation of Opportunity Funds, which are anticipated to be released this fall, now is the time to prepare for the investment potential.
There are five (5) phases to the development of a successful Opportunity Zone project. It is not too soon to get started. Knox Law Public Strategies is ready to assist in each of the five steps.
There are no one-sized fits all solutions, and any Opportunity Zone/Fund process has to be driven by local leaders.
Our team is prepared to help you through this process and is available to assist on a national basis.
