Ten years ago, few people knew what "green building law" or "sustainability" was, let alone what laws applied.  Now, sustainability, “green building” and energy law are reshaping the land use, real estate, and business environments. Shifts in energy law and policy, expansion of sustainable development projects and the emergence of new energy-efficient practices and products are all quickly changing how businesses are competing within the global market.  Our Sustainable Development Practice Group, made up of lawyers from our Private Land Use Practice and Environmental Practice Groups, is a leader in creating practical solutions for cutting-edge challenges in the sustainability industry, while providing a multidisciplinary approach to advise, support and counsel clients on meeting the these new demands.

By advising developers, and private companies on how to meet higher standards, we have helped bring together law, technology and industry in numerous projects related to green building practices.  We understand virtually every aspect of transactional real estate, land use/zoning and environmental law. We also have wide-ranging municipal, business, energy/utility, and litigation experience. 

We have the experience and knowledge to capitalize on the opportunities in sustainable development, conservation, and green business practices.  We are experts in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Florida Green Building Coalition standards for sustainable green building, renewable energy and clean technologies, air quality, climate change and clean water laws.   With this background, and knowledge of the changing legal environment, we are “thought leaders” in the sustainability and green law community, and craft novel sustainable solutions for our clients and communities.
