Maximize Your Financial Benefits While Minimizing Downside Risk.

As knowledgeable attorneys and influencers of Ohio law, we know the most effective ways to help you utilize and leverage available governmental incentive programs for optimal results:

  • Ohio's Opportunity Zone Law - After advocating for its passage, Sikora Law helped our developer Clients obtain more than 20% of all Ohio Opportunity Zone tax credits awarded.

  • Ohio's Site Inventory Program (OSIP) - We help our Clients make speculative developments economically feasible by securing grants and low interest loans from JobsOhio to support warehouse, industrial and office development projects.

  • Tax Abatements & Tax Increment Financing (TIFs) - Reduction or redeployment of property taxes enables certain developments to make sense financially while ultimately increasing the tax base and generating more tax revenue over the long term.

  • Port Authority Involvement - We help Clients obtain sales tax savings on construction materials, which generally makes for projects with construction costs in the range of $10 million or more.

When it comes to commercial real estate development projects, we want to help best-in-class developers like you maximize your financial benefits and enhance your reputation for success.
