Zoning and Land Use


We help builders, developers, and individual property owners navigate the complex development approval and permit issuance processes.

Zoning ordinances, subdivision and forest conservation regulations, and building codes are challenging and unavoidable parts of owning and managing an existing residential, commercial, or industrial building or securing approvals for a new development project. You can count on our land use attorneys to help you navigate the zoning, planning, permitting, and subdivision requirements for land development and use approval. You can also count on us to assist when your permit applications are denied, delayed or revoked, or when you are the subject of a notice of violation.

As our client, you get more than an understanding of local codes, regulations, zoning and subdivision laws, administrative procedure, and appellate litigation. Our trusting professional relationships with department staff, elected officials, local boards and commissions, and industry leaders, enable us to advocate effectively with the appropriate decision makers. Our attorneys know the rules, the people, and the process for development review and approvals and code enforcement, which gives you extra assurance that we’ll get to the heart of your land use or zoning issue quickly and incisively.
