Land Use

Breaking new ground in land use.

Husch Blackwell's Land Use law team steers clients through the maze of restrictions that govern the use of private property. Our Land Use law team, one of the most experienced in the central corridor of the country, includes attorneys with broad experience in local government, civic affairs and business. We draw on these multiple perspectives and relationships in crafting strategic solutions that advance our clients’ projects.

We act as negotiator, representing clients before city councils, zoning boards of adjustment, planning commissions, local governing bodies, and state and local agencies. Common matters include zoning, special use, code compliance, sale and lease of municipal lands, and creative development projects involving public-private cooperation.
