Client Success


When road improvements brought greater commercial visibility to a blighted parcel in De Pere, Wisconsin, a developer sought to transform the acreage into a drugstore. However, estimates for environmental remediation and utility relocation came in higher than expected. 


The Husch Blackwell team was instrumental in helping the developer work with the city and state to utilize a combination of cooperative funding sources that moved the project forward. The new store has increased property tax receipts, created new jobs and provided convenient access to shopping for area residents.
