Real estate and economic development projects are the focus of Korb Maxwell’s practice. His areas of concentration are on large-scale projects that utilize complex federal, state, and municipal development incentives, as well as all aspects of real estate transactions, including purchase and sale agreements, title review, leases, lending and bond documentation, easements, and restrictive covenants.

This background of placing incentivized dollars in the real estate and corporate capital stack led Korb to form the firm’s Opportunity Zones practice group. Opportunity Zones is a new program that promotes long-term investments through the placement of highly tax advantaged capital gains. The Polsinelli Opportunity Zones practice group was one of the first created and through his leadership Korb has created a multidisciplinary team that is helping clients navigate the evolving regulations. His focus is to develop and execute their investment and capital deployment strategies within the Opportunity Zones space across the nation.

Korb has negotiated, secured approval of, and documented hundreds of millions of dollars in incentives for his clients’ projects in every asset class of real estate.

He has significant experience with:

  • Opportunity Zones
  • STAR Bonds
  • Tax increment financing
  • Transportation development districts
  • Community improvement districts
  • Special benefit districts
  • Neighborhood revitalization areas
  • Real and personal property tax exemptions
  • Numerous federal and state tax credit programs

Korb also regularly represents landowners, developers, and business entities before municipalities in zoning and development plan approvals. His extensive interaction with government and the political process has provided him broad connections throughout local, state, and the federal government that allow him to secure results for development, corporate, and government affairs clients at all levels of government.
