Biggs Erases Stumbling Blocks for Companies

Lodie Biggs Featured in Memphis Daily News

Before Lodie Biggs ever stepped foot into law school, he was coached on business ethics from his Depression-era grandfather.

Growing up in Millington with a dad who worked long hours, Biggs would spend the majority of his Saturdays learning about capitalism, the stock market and entrepreneurship.

“He basically gave me a business education on his kitchen table,” Biggs said. “That influenced me more to have drive and to go out and take risk. Work is its own reward. Whatever you do, do it exactly perfect no matter what, don’t compromise.”

Now an attorney at Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz PC, Biggs specializes in commercial real estate and economic development. He’s helped bring thousands of jobs to Memphis by enticing companies with payment-in-lieu-of-taxes (PILOT) incentives.

“I’m objective about pros and cons, but I have a natural incentive to get companies to want them to locate in Memphis as well, so I help them through that process,” he said. “I don’t want them to find a stumbling block. I’d rather go ahead and smooth it over, clear it up and make it easier for them to move into town.”

Recent deals Biggs has touched include Electrolux, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products Inc., City Brewing Co., Pinnacle Airlines Corp. and the U.S. Foodservice expansion in Hickory Hill. While he enjoys being able to market the city and get business in the door, Biggs said his greatest professional accomplishments are the lessons learned along the way.
