Real Estate Development and Land Use
KSP Law’s Real Estate Development and Land Use practice focuses on the representation of major national, regional, and local developers of properties of all kinds – including office, industrial, retail, residential and mixed-use. KSP Law has a long history of successfully working with clients to achieve their development and land use goals.
KSP Law focuses primarily on our clients’ plans for the development or redevelopment of real estate – from new construction and alterations to commercial occupancy changes, property line changes, and site development activity. KSP Law is well known for its extensive experience dealing with municipalities throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Our attorneys routinely appear before state, local, and federal governmental regulatory bodies – including zoning boards and planning boards – with the goal of obtaining land development approvals, special use permits, use variance, dimensional variance and conditional use permits for our clients. In addition, we frequently pursue and receive approval before city and town councils to obtain zone changes, amendments to comprehensive plans, road abandonment and zoning ordinance amendments.
We apply our considerable experience and practical insight to resolve a broad array of environmental, health, and safety issues faced by our clients. Specifically, we represent clients across a wide range of matters – including development of compliance strategies, environmental permitting of large industrial and residential projects, hazardous waste liability, and clean-up – and provide strategic consulting on environmental issues. Our practice includes agency negotiation and advocacy for our clients at federal, state, and local levels, while simultaneously supporting our clients’ strategic and budgetary objectives. Our attorneys are also highly skilled in undertaking complex litigation before state and federal courts involving, among other things, challenges to local or municipal ordinances, adverse possession claims and boundary disputes, and appeals of adverse municipal decisions.
