Land Use & Zoning

Orlando Land Use & Zoning Attorneys

Watson Sloane represents property owners, investors, lenders and real estate developers across the State of Florida in all stages of the land development and entitlement process. Our Real Estate and Land Use attorneys have experience in the full spectrum of land use and development matters, including acquisitions, land assemblage, project and public finance, land use entitlements, development incentives, future land use map amendments, zoning, concurrency, and code enforcement and permitting issues. Our attorneys deliver customized solutions to help our clients meet their objectives for the most complex and challenging projects, including mixed use development, planned development, and adaptive re-use developments.

Our Land Use attorneys frequently work with developers and local governments to obtain the approvals necessary for the development of large-scale residential and commercial projects and also draft, review and negotiate all the necessary development agreements, easements, declarations of covenants and restrictions and related documents.

With decades of combined experience in Florida land use, our attorneys frequently assist clients with land use and development approvals, due diligence studies, and regulatory compliance. We have served as land use counsel for projects ranging in size from small-scale land use changes and variances to large developments of regional impact and sector plans.

Known and respected by the development and regulatory communities, we work cooperatively and productively with participants on all sides of the development process. Some of our attorneys have held high-level positions with local government agencies, so we are intimately familiar with the regulations that govern development projects, and have developed relationships with agency staff and elected officials. Our attorneys’ governmental experience provides them with the unique ability to develop solutions to address complex land use matters.
