Mark is recognized as among the best land use and public law attorneys in the Kansas City metropolitan area. He is engaged by large retailers, public utility companies and real estate developers to obtain the land use approvals and entitlements they need to conduct business. Mark has represented high-profile, controversial clients seeking variances, special use permits, zoning changes, annexation, eminent domain, and redevelopment incentives in Missouri and Kansas. He has organized numerous community development corporations in connection with retail shopping centers and multi-family housing projects financed with low income housing tax credits.  As a former member of the City Council in Kansas City, Missouri, Mark’s experience with  the codes that affect real estate development give him an edge to help developers and public agencies.
