Land Use & Zoning

You’ve just acquired some prime real estate, and you want to build a new commercial office space on it. Or maybe you want to develop an apartment complex. Or perhaps you want to add an addition to an existing facility. But bad news… your city’s zoning ordinances won’t allow for the structural expansion you wish to make or the new building you want to construct.

The absolute last thing you want when developing a new property or adding to the existing one is to guess what local ordinances dictate or what a public hearing process will determine and then not have it turn out in your favor. The best course of action is to find out what you’ll need before you build or even purchase, like a permit or approval through a public hearing.

If you’re a developer or builder, we’ll work with your surveyor, architect, lender, and title company to ensure a smooth process that complies with local ordinances. If you’re an owner, we’re here to help you navigate rezoning, variances, or any other permitting required. Our real-estate lawyers will even be here for you if you’re a neighbor to a development project that you object to.

Our experience handling land use and zoning cases from all angles means that you’ll get the robust approach our clients have benefitted from for over a century. We’ll make everything easier so that you can focus on all the other vital aspects of your project. Call us to find out how!
