Development, Land Use + Construction


A major component of our real estate practice involves the representation of developers, property owners, investors, contractors, and financial institutions in a wide variety of development and construction projects. Attorneys in our Real Estate Group, often working closely with our Land Use and Environmental Law Group, advise clients in connection with master-planned communities, military base conversions, mixed-used developments, large-scale redevelopment projects, airport and public transit expansions, and other major public and private facilities.

Our expertise encompasses all facets of the entitlement, regulatory compliance, development, and construction process, including land use and subdivision approvals, development agreements and vested rights structuring, environmental impact assessments, endangered species and wetlands compliance, and redevelopment issues.

Our development and construction practice also encompasses the negotiation and documentation of a substantial number of design and construction agreements with architects, engineering and design professionals, general contractors and construction managers, and a variety of industry trades.
