Project Development & Environmental Law
A well-thought-out strategy and long-term vision are the most efficient path toward bringing a project to realization. To get there, our project development and environmental team listen before we act to craft a plan that serves our clients, their projects, and their community—without incurring any unnecessary costs. We recognize that everyone has a viewpoint worth considering and understanding the opinions of the community and other stakeholders is key to gaining public support for any project. Our team also knows when to work with regulatory bodies to reach a compromise, and when litigation is necessary. Once we’ve gained confidence from all sides, we remove any and every roadblock that stands in the way of a project getting completed, avoiding financial exposure and time constraints for construction and future tenants.
We navigate the maze of regulations, so you don’t have to.
In project development and environmental law, there are many regulations to be aware of. From securing permits to proper documentation, land use, zoning, and infrastructure laws. Our environmental lawyers work with real estate developers, city planners, construction companies, and individuals to ensure that project planning follows all federal, New York State, and local government regulations.
