New Name, Same Economic Development Focus: DJR Law becomes Montrose Law Firm

Capitalizing on an amendment to the Ohio Rule of Professional Conduct 7.5 that permits Ohio law firms to use trade names, David J. Robinson, Attorney at Law, LLC has changed its brand name to the Montrose Law Firm, LLC. Montrose Law Firm, LLC will continue its focus on economic development legal matters with a multi-disciplinary approach to the practice of law focused on the development of Public-Private-Partnerships on behalf of companies and private sector real estate developers.

Montrose Law Firm, LLC is managed by attorney Dave Robinson based on his 30-year career serving a range of private and public sector clients. Montrose Law Firm, LLC will also continue to utilize non-lawyers, such as Director of Economic Development Nate Green, with substantial economic development program expertise to serve clients in the state of Ohio on corporate site location, economic development program creation, and operation and negotiations of economic development incentives.

“Lawyers do not have a monopoly on negotiating economic development incentives and corporate site location deals.”  Stated Montrose Law Firm Managing Partner Dave Robinson, “Montrose Law Firm, LLC’s name rather than naming a firm after myself as a lawyer better illustrates the approach our team takes to serving clients on economic development matters in the state of Ohio.”

Montrose Law Firm, LLC brand will benefit from the Montrose Group, LLC consulting company brand. Montrose Group, LLC is a national economic development consulting company with a team of five consultants serving communities and companies on corporate site location, economic development planning, project financing, and lobbying services. The Montrose Law Firm will continue to focus on serving large scale industrial, office, residential, and mixed-use private sector developers to negotiate Public-Private-Partnerships including state of Ohio economic development tax credits, grants and loans, land use entitlements such as zoning and annexations, Ohio Enterprise Zone and Community Reinvestment Area tax abatements, Joint Economic Development agreements, Tax Increment Financing for infrastructure funding, and port authority sales tax exemptions to support construction financing.
