Property owners and developers (from individuals to large retailers and service providers) trust Shaw Fishman to handle the land use and zoning requirements of their real estate projects. We work with local government officials to make certain the land for real estate and development projects has the appropriate zoning and required permits, covenants and approvals. Our lawyers analyze local land development codes, zoning ordinances, development regulations and other restrictions and requirements to ensure that they do not conflict with our client’s proposed project. We then help secure the necessary government permits and approvals for land annexation; land rezoning to permit the planned uses; land subdividing and platting; and obtaining special use permits, site plan approval and building permits.

We represent owners and developers with respect to the securing of entitlements, general problem analysis, and resolution of land use issues. In these areas, our clients vary from individuals, to large, national retailers and service providers.
