Florida is experiencing new and unprecedented levels and patterns of migration. Some of this migration is concentrated in the state's primary markets. South Florida, for example, has been witnessing the steadily increasing expansion and relocation of companies from other parts of the country from sectors that have not historically been part of the local economic fabric, such as technology companies and hedge funds that rely on specialized workforce and metropolitan areas with high social capital.

Statewide, absence of state income and capital gains taxes, combined with a surging demand for Florida's quality of life in light of coronavirus-induced lock downs and forced closures in other parts of the country, has led to substantial wealth migration. New transplants are flowing into the metro Miami area, the Tampa Bay area, Palm Beach, and Orlando. Meanwhile major infrastructure investments, such as the Brightline high-speed passenger rail system, are connecting the most economically active parts of the state, accelerating the rapid development pushed by this migration.

Bilzin Sumberg is deeply familiar with the forces behind this new migration pattern, the business trends it is pushing, and what companies, institutions and individuals need to know from a business and legal perspective on how to navigate and thrive in Florida's rapidly changing cauldron of opportunities.
