Real Estate, Land Use and Zoning Litigation

Teamed with our Real Estate and Land Use and Zoning Groups, our litigators have helped shape Florida real estate and land use law. We have litigated cases relating to consistency between a development order and a local comprehensive master plan.

Other cases involving real estate and land use issues include:

  • Challenges to Land Development regulations and zoning and land use appeals
  • Challenges to amendments to a master plan
  • Standing to challenge zoning rulings
  • Allegations of regulatory taking and due process violations
  • Water rights
  • Environmental Law
  • Sustainability and "Green" law
  • Federal claims arising from land use approvals
  • Challenges to comprehensive plan amendments
  • Defense of zoning enactments
  • Challenges to quasi-judicial rulings of local governing bodies
  • First Amendment challenges to sign codes and adult entertainment codes

We are also experienced in litigation stemming from general real estate transactions, as well as the enforcement of commercial leases.
