Real Estate & Land Use

The purchase, development and sale of real estate require detailed knowledge of state and local laws and ordinances, a thorough understanding of environmental regulations and broad experience in financing.

Drawing on our expertise, we guide you through all aspects of the real estate development process: purchasing the parcel, obtaining permits, presenting plans to local and state boards, working with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, dealing with abutters, attending zoning hearings, drafting easements and rights of way, selling lots and negotiating construction contracts.

We provide seasoned counsel for individuals and businesses in the purchase, sale and lease of residential and commercial real estate. We also represent farmers seeking agricultural or preservation restrictions on land use.
