Land Use, Zoning and Redevelopment
MSW serves as land use and zoning counsel to developers, property owners, and businesses throughout New Jersey.
The firm’s land use attorneys and professionals work closely with clients and project teams to establish a proper legal and regulatory framework for a project’s design and construction, and help clients navigate the ever-complex land use process to ensure that they receive all of the necessary government approvals and permits required to develop a project. The firm’s attorneys regularly appear before local land use boards and other governmental bodies in connection with planning, zoning, and other land use approvals.
In addition, the firm’s attorneys regularly perform land use and zoning due diligence to determine a project’s feasibility, and work closely with the firm’s transactional practice groups to structure land use related provisions in purchase and sale agreements and commercial leases.
MSW also represents developers in the negotiation of redevelopment agreements, and in the procurement of tax abatements and exemptions and other public incentives needed to make a development project economically viable. Our team regularly helps our private sector clients identify public-private partnerships and provides strategic counsel throughout every phase of the development process.
