Our land use and zoning attorneys assist a wide range of industries, businesses, trade groups, and individuals. We have successfully navigated diverse clients through the complex world of zoning, planning, land use and environmental approvals. We have counseled clients on both sides of the land use development and regulatory process, including developers and municipalities as special counsel. We advocate for clients on land use and zoning matters before municipal and legislative boards at the local, state and federal level throughout Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess and Orange Counties, the greater Hudson Valley and New Jersey. Our attorneys have extensive experience in the following areas: rezoning and comprehensive plans, site plans, subdivisions, zoning amendments, variances, special permits, environmental reviews and permits, local laws and regulations, zoning enforcement actions, due diligence, SEQRA, RLUIPA and the Fair Housing Act.
We work closely with government officials, agencies, residents and various other stakeholders to secure appropriate zoning, permits and approvals for real estate and development projects to assure the approval is defensible if litigation follows. We have extensive experience assisting clients to develop strong administrative records, which are critical for their projects to be approved, financed and ultimately completed. We also represent clients in all types of litigation challenging land use and zoning issues.
