Our economic development services are enhanced through Barnes & Thornburg’s subsidiary, BT Strategies. Site selection, incentives, and community development often require more than traditional legal services. BT Strategies’ experienced financial and consulting professionals help with the assessment of business climate, labor markets, utility costs, accessibility, and the many other factors that affect a site selection decision.
BT Strategies’ consultants and advisers also provide the negotiation insight and financial analysis necessary to help companies evaluate and obtain strong incentives. Their business experience also allows BT Strategies to assist communities in the planning necessary to be well-positioned for economic development.

TechLaw Group, Inc. was formed in 1986 by five large U.S. law firms. Their mission was unique to the rapidly evolving practice of technology law: share best practices, provide a mechanism for referrals when it was mutually advantageous to do so, and build membership carefully so as to preserve a small group of non-competitive firms so that lasting and productive relationships can take root. From there, the organization has grown to include 24 law firms with more than 8,400 lawyers and offices in more than 35 countries. Currently, a Barnes & Thornburg attorney serves on the board of directors.
