Our firm has established long-term relationships with architects, engineers, planners, brokers and other real estate-related specialists. These relationships give us the ability to assist our commercial developer clients with a wide range of legal matters related to the work of these professionals.Zoning and Land Use
In addition to assisting with the purchase and sale of commercial and residential real estate, our firm undertakes matters involving zoning and land use. This can involve representing a residential property owner before a town zoning board of appeal or planning board or applying for permits from local, state and federal environmental protection agencies for a commercial developer.Real Estate Litigation
Dispute resolution is an important part of any real estate legal practice. While our law firm is capable and willing to pursue formal litigation on behalf of our clients' interests, we are also mindful of the potential benefits of pursuing alternate dispute resolution methods when appropriate. We handle issues arising from commercial leases, zoning violation claims, real estate partnership disputes, breach of contract suits and all other types of real estate disputes.Attorney Credentials
