Buchalter’s land use attorneys built their reputation by consistently obtaining flexible and defensible land use and development entitlements in every type of development environment—including urban, rural, suburban, coastal and redevelopment. We have handled, from beginning to end, some of the most complicated projects in California. We also represent the developers of smaller projects, who sometimes simply need us to intervene at certain critical points in the entitlement process.
We realize that land use entitlements serve a business goal, and understand the ways in which entitlements can affect later aspects of a development, including financing and disposition. This understanding allows us to assist clients in structuring entitlements and the timing and financing of infrastructure investments to best meet their underlying business strategies. Moreover, when development by others has the potential to harm our clients’ interests, we have the expertise to intervene to prevent or eliminate that harm.
