Home of the Blues: comprehensive counsel for the entertainment and hospitality sector

Merkel & Cocke sits right in the heart of the Mississippi delta valley, home to the greatest music ever invented: the blues. From Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf to more contemporary figures like Woody Mann and Burnside Exploration, we are home to the music that defined America.

Because of the influx of revenue and interest, the delta has flourished in recent years, making it an ideal investment area for the entertainment and hospitality industries. The State’s business-friendly corporate tax structure, coupled with a low cost of living, makes the delta an ideal place to open up a restaurant, a blues club, or even a casino. The opportunities are endless.

Our firm represents local businesses, out-of-state investors, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs who are looking to create their own little piece of heaven in the South. Whether you are looking to purchase a storefront at a reasonable price, or to sell off farmland to another business owner, we can help.
