Land Use Permitting involves a tangle of legal, strategic, political, engineering, and financial issues. Conn Kavanaugh's lawyers have been representing land owners and developers for four decades in maneuvering through the labyrinth of local and state land use regulations and strategic considerations. Our depth of experience is found both in our real estate transactional practitioners and our land use specialists.
Our experience covers all stages of planning and developing commercial and residential projects, including single-family residential subdivisions, multi-family cluster developments, retail developments, office parks, assisted living facilities, and planned-unit developments. We apply our knowledge -- gained as litigators, negotiators, and transactional counsel -- to marshal engineers and design professionals to work through federal, state and municipal laws, regulations, and rules. Our attorneys have an extensive background in municipal law, having served as counsel for various municipalities and on municipal boards that make land use decisions.
