Bilzin Sumberg has represented foreign and domestic owners, developers and investors across Florida, the product of which has literally reshaped the skyline of our community. Working closely with government and regulatory agencies, developers and landowners, our attorneys examine, interpret and help establish land use policy.

The Land Development & Government Relations Group represents clients through all aspects of the government regulatory approval and permitting process, including planning and zoning applications, developments of regional impact, development agreements and complex environmental and land use permitting.

Our Land Development & Government Relations Group conducts due diligence evaluations, to make an assessment of applicable laws, permitted uses, viability of permits and approvals, restrictions or limitations regarding changes to or expansions of current uses and the existence of vested rights. These evaluations assist lenders and developers in determining the value of properties and loans. We have extensive experience handling land use litigation, and, when necessary, we protect our clients' property rights in the courtroom or in administrative proceedings.

Moreover, we work with clients on areas of special interest such as:

  • Affordable Housing

  • Historic Preservation
  • Major Special Use Permits (MUSPs)
