Zoning Matters

Offering a Practical, Hands-On Perspective on a Wide Range of Zoning Matters

We’ve advised commercial businesses, developers, lenders, nonprofits, private landowners, and prospective purchasers on zoning law and land use for decades. Our real estate attorneys partner with our tax and litigation groups to represent clients seeking to obtain zoning approvals.

We counsel clients who seek assistance:

  • Developing or subdividing land
  • Interpreting and appealing zoning officer rulings
  • Obtaining conditional uses, special exceptions, variances, and zoning permits
  • Verifying whether land use, lot, or structure is a nonconforming use

Our clients benefit both from our many years of experience and also the relationships we’ve built with officials and municipalities. When necessary, we represent clients before:

  • Boroughs
  • Planning commissions
  • State and federal agencies
  • State and federal courts
  • Townships
  • Zoning hearing boards

With our strong focus on zoning and commitment to due diligence, we advocate for our clients to help them achieve their goals in compliance with community visions and regulations.
