3. Zoning & Land Use
Reisman Sorokac’s diverse real-estate practice also includes zoning and land use matters. We advise and assist on all matters relating to planning and zoning, including initial property zoning and use analysis for development or redevelopment purposes, land use applications, from submittal to final action (such as use permits, waivers of development standards and design reviews), and post-approval guidance (including compliance and required reviews). Our lawyers have developed relationships with the community, local boards, commissions, councils, and their staffs to be highly effective in this area of practice.

7. Outside General Counsel

Over the last decade we have often served or functioned as outside-general counsel to meet all of the legal needs of a business or to provide legal counsel with respect to a particular practice area. Our clients have used our outside general counsel services on matters related to commercial real estate, zoning and land use, government affairs and lobbying, licensing and compliance, business transactions, business litigation, vendor contracts, corporate governance and employment advice.
