Disputes over development rights, purchase and sales agreements, easements, licenses and leases benefit from counsel with an understanding of real property law, zoning and land use law, easement rights, landlord-tenant relationships, and the rights and obligations of adjacent landowners.  Our attorneys are long-time members of organizations such as the Urban Land Institute and the International Council of Shopping Centers, regular contributors to real estate industry publications, and speakers at regional and national conferences.  Practicing in state and federal courts and appearing before local zoning and municipal boards, our litigators have represented clients in many types of real estate-related proceedings and negotiations.
