Drawing upon deep experience in real estate, financing, contract negotiation, general corporate law and more, Laura and her team assist businesses looking to expand or relocate, developers planning their next big project, and municipalities seeking to attract those projects. Laura is currently managing multiple major headquarters relocations or expansions for companies across Ohio.
“We manage economic development projects from start to finish, from advising on site selection to securing financing to negotiating favorable construction contracts and more,” says Laura. “We are committed to improving the economic well-being of our community, and we collaborate with businesses, government and community stakeholders to bring new jobs and investment to Ohio.”
Prior to joining KJK in 2013, Laura spent more than six years working in the U.S. Senate advancing business and community development across Ohio. She brings to her work critical connections at the federal, state, and local levels that help businesses access the resources they need to expand and grow.
