Land Use & Zoning

Clients turn to the law firm’s attorneys when their project requires a creative, effective, and aggressive approach to real estate, land use and zoning approvals while taking advantage of available development incentives. For decades, our attorneys have represented clients in the development of many high-profile and successful commercial, residential and mixed-use projects.  A number of our land use and zoning attorneys have held public offices and local government positions bringing a unique and clear perspective about the intricate workings of state and local governments to the table along with the relationships they have cultivated.  The portfolio of work by the firm’s public law groups  includes the new $1.8 billion Kansas City International Airport, the $1.6 billion NASCAR track in Kansas City, Kansas, the $1 billion renovation at the Kansas City Sports Complex, thousands of apartments and multi-family units, and millions of square feet of office, retail and commercial development.

Laws pertaining to land use and zoning are not always clear or easily understood. Clients deserve the support of a  firm that can cut through the bureau-speak and red tape of zoning and land use regulations. Our goal is to help our clients navigate the complex and tedious bureaucracies of the zoning and land use approval and permitting process as quickly and cost efficiently as possible. Our insight is so deep, our partner Michael T. White literally wrote the book on Missouri Land Use Law.
