Ideas + Solutions


A growing public client faced a chronic shortage of funds for capital improvements. Our attorneys converted a routine loan refinancing for the client into an opportunity to save millions of dollars and enable the client to fund significant new projects without increasing its taxes.

Mississippi school districts traditionally lacked a commercially viable means of using or disposing of their old buildings. The attorneys of Young Law Group drafted legislation to create new options which allow school districts to team up with developers and private business to convert old school buildings into commercial projects. This benefits schools, developers and the communities as a whole.

A frequent obstacle to development throughout the state is an entity’s lack of resources for construction or development. In cooperation with local economic development agencies and private businesses, we are working to identify state and federal incentives as well as other non-traditional financing alternatives to enable business growth and development.

Whatever problems or project you bring to Young Law Group, you can count on us to attack it with creativity and innovative thinking, bringing 100% of our internal and external resources to bear on your project. We’ve had clients make such comments as, “Nobody ever thought it through the way you did.” After working with Young Law Group, we believe you’ll say the same.
