Land Use and Environmental

The purchase, development and use of real property often involves a myriad of complex legal issues.  To meet the needs of our clients, Ruskin Moscou Faltischek has established a cross disciplinary Land Use and Environmental Practice Group whose attorneys have a broad range of expertise and experience to address any issue that may arise for builders, developers and property owners.

We have handled a variety of land use matters concerning residential and commercial properties, from variances and special use permits, to effecting major code changes so clients can move forward with their projects without costly time delays.  With our in-depth knowledge of state and local incentive programs, we routinely secure tax abatements, low-interest IDA financing and other special benefits to help reduce the cost of expansions and new construction.  Our attorneys help clients take full advantage of major government grant programs for which they qualify.

Ruskin Moscou Faltischek also advises and represents developers, investors, residents, regulated utilities and agencies in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies and planning boards addressing environmental obstacles to the use and development of real property. Our attorneys are especially skilled at identifying, negotiating and resolving complex environmental litigation issues, whether in the context of governmental proceedings or in private transactions. Our attorneys are also experienced in all aspects of commercial litigation involving real property, routinely handling contract and business disputes, brokerage claims, or actions involving title issues.

Our team includes seasoned litigators and former government officials who recognize the singular importance of creating compliance strategies that promote the best interests of our clients and avoid court proceedings.

So whatever challenges that may arise concerning real property, Ruskin Moscou Faltischek has the knowledge and experience to fully assist our clients in meeting their needs
