Anthony De Yurre

Anthony De Yurre is a Partner in Bilzin Sumberg's Land Development & Government Relations Group. His practice exclusively focuses on the representation of real estate developers and investors in complex land use and zoning matters with a focus on transit oriented development, large scale mixed-use development, public private partnerships and multifamily workforce housing. As a native Miamian, Anthony recognizes the tremendous need for attainable housing throughout Florida and is heavily engaged in Live Local Act (SB102 and SB328) legislation, interpretation and application at both the state and local levels.  

Anthony is an adjunct professor of law at the University of Miami’s LL.M. in Real Property Development where he teaches “Problem Solving Large Scale, Mixed-Use Development”. He is also Co-Chair of the University of Miami’s Real Property Development LL.M Advisory Board. Upon graduating from Duke University and Vanderbilt Law, Anthony returned home to Miami to earn his LL.M. in Real Property Development from the same program he teaches at today at the University of Miami. Anthony is also fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.

Q & A
What challenges do you see facing the Miami area?
One of the biggest challenges facing Miami is its lack of transportation infrastructure. I am very excited to be working on some of Miami’s key transportation-oriented development. Creating a better transit system for Miami is critical to its transformation into a world-class city.
What client relationship are you most proud of?
One of my clients is a long-time real estate developer. The relationship started out with one matter, but within a number of months the relationship grew. I helped them rethink the way they were using legal services as a business. Most recently I helped them with a government request for proposal on a $400 million redevelopment for a private-public partnership.
How have mentors shaped the way you practice law?
The culture at Bilzin Sumberg is unique. Training and education are built into the way we think about our work every single day. Almost everyone here is a mentor. My mentors have helped me learn more about communicating with clients and fostering relationships with the community outside the office.
