Clients expect projects to be quickly and economically approved by regulatory authorities and for the expedient preparation of documentation to coordinate financing.
Complicated zoning codes and a restrictive financing environment can turn a simple redevelopment project into a difficult challenge. Given the highly specialized and complex regulatory process, it’s advantageous to have legal representation with significant expertise in real estate development, as well as equity and loan financing. At McGrath North, we offer real estate developers an in-depth knowledge of both the regulatory and financing processes. Our experienced legal team can assist you with complicated zoning codes and building approvals. We can advise you on preventing or resolving issues with potential opponents of your project. And we can guide you in the structuring and documentation of loan agreements or transactions involving equity investors.
If you are considering seeking advice from counsel, here is what we suggest you keep in mind:
- You want to be advised up front about the potential challenges and expenses you may face in your effort to obtain zoning and land use approval and financing.
- You want your counsel to have significant knowledge of your local zoning codes and issues involving the financing of your project.
