In addition, our firm has an extensive land use and zoning practice group, which has represented a variety of residential real estate developers in matters before the Council on Affordable Housing and “builders remedy” lawsuits to allow the construction of affordable housing.

Further, our real estate lawyers work closely with the litigation department in handling real estate-related litigation, including actions in lieu of prerogative writs, mortgage and lien foreclosure actions, and leasing and contract litigation, as well as actions for specific performance and the dissolution of real estate partnerships.
