The Real Estate unit handles both residential and commercial real estate acquisitions and sales on behalf of both individuals and business entities. These transactions include both one-family and multi-family dwellings, shopping center properties, and negotiation of commercial leases. In addition to this transactional work, firm attorneys also litigate real estate-related matters dealing with such issues as adverse possession, easements, and breach of contract claims.
The Land Use and Zoning unit represents both individual and private entities, as well as public entities in this area of the law.
Such work results in our firm's attorneys being fully acquainted with both regional and local statutes, as well as board rules and regulations. This allows us to advise our clients on land use applications, site plans, special permits, subdivision requirements, and the necessity for all types of variances. Firm attorneys regularly appear before various boards on behalf of clients to assist them in obtaining the appropriate approval for their projects.
