A shifting regulatory environment, potentially volatile relationships with local governments, limited availability of land and the challenges of accessing capital are among the many hurdles facing developers of real estate projects. Astute legal counsel can help chart a course for successful completion of even the most challenging projects. Known and respected by both development and regulatory communities, Rees Broome’s zoning and land use specialists have become intimately familiar with the complex processes and procedures that govern development projects.

Our Zoning & Land Use practice advises regional developers, landowners, investors, and lenders on the full spectrum of land use and development matters, including acquisitions, land assemblage, project and public finance, land use entitlements, development incentives and zoning issues. We focus on customized solutions to help clients involved in complex and challenging projects, including mixed-use, planned and adaptive re-use developments.

Because ongoing regulatory changes always affect the entitlement process, clients call on Rees Broome for assistance in obtaining approvals from local and state governments and for guidance on regulatory compliance issues. Our multidisciplinary team boasts the knowledge and experience to handle all aspects of a project, integrating the full range of legal services - from financing and environmental law to litigation and appellate law.
