A successful real estate project begins with a solid foundation. We understand how local ordinances intersect with state and federal laws, from subdivision requirements to environmental permitting, and use our knowledge to obtain all necessary permits and approvals for a project. We have decades of experience steering clients around potential obstacles and through the often-complex maze of local requirements.
Our work does not end with obtaining needed approvals. Members of our team who litigate appeals of zoning permits excel at defending approvals against legal challenges that might otherwise scuttle a project. We are familiar with the roadblocks that may arise during the initial phases of a project and are adept at guiding a project successfully beyond the blueprint stage.
We represent clients in matters involving:
Commercial, industrial, and residential developers
Hospitals and health care institutions
Colleges and universities
Corporations with real estate needs
Outdoor advertising companies
As community leaders and attorneys, our team has built a rapport with government agencies, civic groups, and neighborhood associations. These relationships are built on the credibility we have earned through straight talk in our dealings with stakeholders. Our attorneys collaborate with the firm’s construction, eminent domain, water and environmental law, taxation, and real estate finance attorneys.
Our attorneys are active in community development corporations, historical commissions, planning commissions, and zoning boards. We have written major zoning and planning ordinances and have appeared before government commissions nationwide.
