We have spent decades cultivating the knowledge and relationships needed to move your project forward to success
At McDonald, Fleming, Moorhead, we build and maintain professional relationships with your development team and local government attorneys, planning staff, planning commissioners and elected officials to lay the groundwork for success. Over the years we have developed a reputation of credibility and integrity before local and state agencies who know that when we are involved in a project, they can trust the project will be done right. That reputation, along with nearly three decades spent cultivating knowledge and relationships, give us a unique ability to move your project forward to a successful conclusion.
Our attorneys understand the legal and business challenges impacting your development plans; and we work closely with you to implement your land use vision, business goals, and strategies for exceptional results.
We assist clients with zoning and land use legislative and administrative approval processes in connection with the acquisition, development, leasing, sale/exchange or use of real estate. In addition to counseling and working through the maze of local, State and Federal agency reviews, our attorneys are prepared to handle administrative appeals and litigation. We work with our clients’ site development planners, traffic engineers, surveyors, civil engineers, site acquisition specialists, property managers and leasing directors to formulate and implement strategies to accomplish our clients’ development objectives against the complex backdrop of local regulations.
We handle sensitive and controversial land use matters with careful advocacy, lobbying and public and government relations strategies; and when it makes sense, we explore compromises.
We know that the goal is to get your project moving forward as efficiently and economically as possible so that you can maximize the return on the substantial investment you have made.
