Faegre Drinker attorneys counsel owners, developers and lenders in all aspects of development and redevelopment. We efficiently shepherd projects from start to finish and beyond with timely, cost-effective service by building bridges between clients, project architects and consultants, lenders, government staff and officials, and community members to deliver creative, cost-effective regulatory approvals. Our team represents real estate developers and project owners in every phase of their projects, representing clients in proceedings at all levels of government to secure permits and approvals and to negotiate agreements with government agencies. We structure transactions, counsel on environmental remediation, form condominiums and property owner associations and draft covenant restrictions and easements. Additionally, we advise on and negotiate development agreements and economic and tax incentives, grant and financing programs available to developers, owners and tenants, including TIF, tax exemptions and abatements and impact fee waivers. We also understand the complexities and requirements related to unique properties and assets and have helped developers obtain zoning approvals and break ground on projects involving all types of real estate uses. When a project faces significant hurdles, whether from planning staff, elected officials or surrounding neighbors, we walk alongside clients to map out and implement a strategy that addresses the community’s concerns and positions the development for success.
