Zoning Approvals & Permitting
Graydon's Real Estate team regularly represents clients in judicial and quasi-judicial proceedings as well as mediations and arbitrations involving real estate matters. This includes matters such as zoning and plan review, tax valuation and appeals, condemnation proceedings, and operational issues such as tenant disputes, eviction proceedings and maintenance and property management contracts. The real estate team includes litigators to ensure that, regardless of the nature of the proceeding, it is properly staffed with lawyers experienced in both real estate and litigation or arbitration, as appropriate. We have also been engaged in complex annexation proceedings.
Zoning and permitting issues frequently arise in development and construction projects. Our counseling can help prevent these issues from stalling a project. Our attorneys have both successfully obtained and contested zoning changes, conditional uses, and variances for numerous clients through both the administrative and litigation process, appearing before planning and zoning commissions and boards of zoning appeals. We have also litigated complex zoning matters at state, administrative, trial appellate and supreme court levels.
