Our attorneys handle a broad range of real estate and property matters involving Condominium and Association Board representation, land acquisition, all aspects of zoning and planning, and commercial and residential transactions.
Land Use, Zoning & Planning
Our attorneys handle land use issues in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, ranging from simple homeowner variance applications to complicated, major subdivision and site plan approvals, general development plans and related permitting.
Firm attorneys have broad experience in all areas of land use and the complex interaction required to obtain approvals at the local, county, state and national level. We work closely with other professionals, including engineers, planners, traffic engineers, architects and surveyors, to identify all approvals necessary for a project and to maximize the chances of obtaining those approvals.
Commercial & Residential Transactions
Our attorneys have extensive experience in transactional issues, including purchases and sales of residential properties, commercial properties, and negotiating easements and licenses.
Our attorneys serve as condemnation commissioners when appointed by the Court, draft proposed redevelopment zones, and obtain approvals in historically significant areas. We regularly secure land use and regulatory approvals.
Our land use attorneys are regularly involved in litigation involving challenges to site plans, the imposition of fees on developers, challenges to Redevelopment designations, challenges to the elimination of pre-existing non-conforming uses, challenges to approvals obtained concerning inherently beneficial uses, and numerous other matters.
Our sophisticated Real Estate attorneys not only assist in obtaining necessary development approvals, but also defend those approvals when challenged.
