Get to the solution more efficiently with attorneys who know the lay of the land.
The Real Estate and Land Use Litigation Group works in coordination with other practice groups on the full range of disputes and proceedings relating to real property.
This work relates both to court litigation involving interests in land such as boundaries and easements, and to permitting matters before boards, commissions and courts. Our clients range from individuals dealing with local zoning permits or private land disputes to large national companies navigating through Vermont’s permit appeal system.
You are our most important collaborator.
Downs Rachlin Martin lawyers work closely with the client’s key personnel to understand not only the facts and the law but also the client’s business, financial and personal needs and goals in order to collaborate on a strategy designed to achieve success as defined by the client. By working closely with attorneys in the real estate, energy and telecommunications groups, we are able to combine the industry expertise of these lawyers with the courtroom experience of our seasoned trial litigators.
Members of the group have developed reputations for being strong and persistent advocates on behalf of our clients, while maintaining positive relationships with regulators, tribunals, and other attorneys. We also strive to be pragmatic, understanding that success is often achieved by way of collaborative means rather than full-blown litigation through all available appeals. Each matter is different, and our lawyers tailor each matter to the specific client.
