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 and work with our clients for the successful completion of complex development projects. We advise our clients in all areas of government entitlements, permits and regulatory compliance. We partner with our clients as they traverse the uncertain legal landscape of land use law.

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 including industrial, multi-family, entertainment, 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 land use entitlements process affects terms, timing and ultimately the success of the project. MGM LLP brings a sophisticated understanding of the business and regulatory environment.
