With decades of experience handling these complex matters, our real estate development lawyers are solutions-oriented and prepared to overcome any challenge.

Zeroing in on Your Objectives

At the outset, our lawyers will review the details of your project. We will assess what steps must be taken, including identifying required regulatory approvals and, potential opposition. We understand the importance of identifying all possible hurdles to bringing a project to completion. After our careful assessment, working in collaboration with your engineers, architects, surveyors and/or environmental consultants, we will create a legal strategy and work with you to put it into action.

The regulatory maze can seem daunting, but we know how to maneuver through it. We have earned a positive reputation with land use and zoning clients in the Hudson Valley and throughout New York and Connecticut, in part because of our knowledge of and our ability to work positively with key participants, including zoning boards, state agencies and other government staff and officials.

We understand the importance of due diligence to identify proper permissions required to move a project forward and to build an appropriate record in the event of a third-party challenge following project approval. In other words, we will work diligently to position you for success.
