Project Development Services

Experienced in development projects in Minnesota and the Surrounding Five State Area 

At Hanson Law Office, PA, I have more than 15 years’ experience advising businesses and individuals on what are often complex and time-consuming project development matters, including investments and management.  With extensive experience in all phases of the development process, I’ll assist your project from the initial stages through financing, approvals and closing.  See below for more detail.

A Bridge to Commercial and Public Financing
  • Extensive experience in helping clients obtain TIF (Tax Increment Financing) and experience identifying and pursuing other viable sources of public financing.

We often wear many “hats” in this role.

 In addition to providing a bridge to private and public financing, managing relationships with general contractors, lenders, and government agencies, we recognize real estate development is a complex process with a diversity of issues, players and stakeholders.  In the fast paced world of real estate development and modern finance, important decisions need to be made quickly to keep a project on track.  In the absence of precision decision making, more than a money loss is at stake.  At Hanson Law Office, we get it.

Over the last 15 years, we have worked with realtors, developers, assisted living facility investors, new business startups and property managers to navigate nearly every aspect of a transaction or project to a successful outcome.  We have led site acquisition campaigns and helped clients obtain TIF (Tax Increment Financing).  We value attention to detail as much as our clients do, we keep our eye on the big picture and we know the law.
