Land Use / Development
The Real Estate/Land Use and Development section of the firm handles all aspects of commercial and residential real estate, from the sale of a residence to the development of $100,000,000 projects. Our practice handles purchase, sale and financing of real property as well as in obtaining local, county and state approvals for all aspects of the development process. In addition to obtaining such development approvals, we work hand-in-hand with the firm's Environmental/Toxic Tort Litigation Department to obtain environmental approvals which range from simple stream encroachment permits to full scale remediation plans. We also have an active practice involving the negotiation, preparation and review of commercial leases. We coordinate with the firm's Wills, Trusts and Estates Department to advise our clients on the tax impacts related to their transactions and any available options for mitigating the same. Our clients range from single-family homeowners to multinational corporations.
