Real Estate Development
Through our land use practice the attorneys of Persson & Cohen represent both public and private clients in all aspects of land use, planning, and zoning. For our public clients, we have handled a range of issues from amendments to local comprehensive plans and zoning codes to representation when final decisions are challenged. We also provide advice to local government staff such as planning directors and managers, advise Planning and Zoning Boards and Zoning Boards of Adjustment, and assist with the drafting of ordinances and resolutions. On the private side, we assist clients with the securing of entitlements for their projects, including the necessary zoning and land use approvals. Our goal is to obtain project approval as expeditiously as possible by working with local government staff on resolving any issues upfront. We also have experience advising interested parties on the most effective ways to handle disputed land use decisions.
