Real Estate, Land Use and Zoning

The Firm’s reputation in the Land Use and Zoning practice area is well known in the Philadelphia real estate and legal community.  Our attorneys have earned a reputation for their proven, effective ability to help developers, owners and tenants secure approvals for their projects.  Our service transcends traditional land use and zoning matters, offering you expertise in all phases of the development process.

Zoning boards and planning agencies often create obstacles in the development process. Our lawyers are practical, results-driven, knowledgeable about all state and local land use laws and are creative in their approach.

In addition to our zoning and planning expertise, we assist our clients on the financial side of the development process.  We have experience helping our clients obtain financing and structure partnerships for the acquisition and development of real estate.  We also recognize that not every real estate development is a success, and we have the knowledge and capability to assist in the restructuring of debt, loan workouts, and, if necessary, defense of the foreclosure and deficiency judgment process.
