Development

Donohue & Stearns' experience with real estate transactions, commercial leasing, real estate litigation and real estate entitlements enables developers to move ahead with confidence.

For land developers, Donohue & Stearns is experienced in regional land use, zoning and local government matters. This includes the negotiation of proffers, conditions and similar agreements often necessary to facilitate governmental approvals, as well as the negotiation and preparation of easements and licenses, the resolution of condemnation issues and the resolution of title issues that might present an impediment to development.

Depending upon the unique regulatory and political environment in each area, it is important for Donohue & Stearns to work with each client to develop a unique and comprehensive land use strategy for their projects. The goal of this strategy is to increase the percentage of favorable entitlement decisions. In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary to address a wide range of issues starting with site selection and continuing through the approval process. Donohue & Stearns works within each jurisdiction to arrive at “win-win” solutions for our clients and the communities in which they are building.
