Land Use, Zoning and Development

Malkerson Gunn Martin LLP’s attorneys are preeminent in the region in the area of land use, zoning, and development law.  We serve as development counsel to clients in the complexities of project development and successful completion in all areas of government entitlements, permits and regulatory compliance.  Malkerson Gunn Martin LLP partners with our clients as they traverse the uncertain legal landscape of land use laws.

Development counsel requires identifying the best and most efficient path to project development.  Malkerson Gunn Martin LLP has provided development counsel guidance on all manner of complex projects from industrial to multi-family to entertainment to mixed use and complex public projects.  Many of these projects require local, regional, state and environmental compliance and entitlements.  The experienced lawyers at Malkerson Gunn Martin LLP work with project developers and consultants to chart the path toward successful project completion.

The focus of every successful real estate project is often the deal itself.  The land use entitlements process affects terms, timing and ultimately the success of the project.  Representation of projects depends upon a sophisticated understanding of the business and regulatory environment.
