Planning

With experience across a wide range of projects, from single family residential to complex infill projects, our lawyers represent clients across the zoning and planning spectrum, including individuals, businesses, neighborhood associations, historic preservation groups, and governmental entities.  Our successful representation of such a broad array of land use clients is due to our ability to perceive potential challenges early on in the process and then plot a path through the complex regulatory environment to meet our clients’ targets.

We advise on potential and upcoming regulatory changes and amendments, draft and tailor proposed amendments, and advocate for our clients and their objectives through the amendment process. We assist our public entity clients in the interpretation of existing laws, including charters, constitutions, master plans, comprehensive plans, and zoning regulation ordinances.  We serve our clients by discerning how existing laws are, and should be, applied to situations, as well as perceiving potential future impacts of interpretations and applications.

By recognizing the long-term impact of today’s planning decisions, our land use and zoning team advises our clients on both immediate and future effects of current regulations and potential zoning ordinance changes.
