Land Use

The attorneys in our land use practice work primarily with clients who are dealing with governmental agencies in connection with the development and use of their property. We have a unique combination of local governmental and private practice experience that enables us to guide landowners, developers and businesses through Oregon’s complex land use regulatory environment.

We are well-suited to working with government planners, staff and counsel, private land use consultants, surveyors, engineers, architects and other professionals in successfully representing our clients in achieving their goals.
