Land Use & Development
Barriers to entry for new construction have never been higher. We navigate the complex set of zoning, planning, land use, environmental and other regulations. Our team understands the ordinances and processes, anticipates the challenges and obstacles and consistently provides cost-effective, practical solutions. We oversee the regulatory process from beginning to end, working with architects, engineers, surveyors, and other experts to ensure all permit applications and entitlements are accurate, effective, timely and within budget. With permit-granting authorities, we ensure written approvals are clear and comprehensive. When necessary, the firm’s experienced land use and environmental litigators zealously represent our clients in legal challenges.
Getting everyone on-board often depends on “the right touch.”
We take a proactive and collaborative approach when working with regulatory authorities and agencies. We identify key stakeholders early in the process and facilitate dialogue with neighbors and other stakeholders. Because we possess a comprehensive understanding of the process, we strategically identify key issues up front, anticipate concerns, develop creative solutions, avoid delays and deliver favorable results. We know when to push and when to compromise. We know how best to “bullet proof” approvals to survive legal challenges. Our motto is “excellence in execution.”
