Economic Development

Understanding the business and governmental aspects of economic development enables us to bring projects to fruition.

KDDK attorneys have worked closely with business leaders, developers, planning and government officials, and legislators to lay the groundwork for most of the public, private and public-private projects that have contributed to the growth and economy in Evansville, Southwestern Indiana and the Tri-State area for decades.
