Planning and Zoning

In the complex world of planning and zoning, the legal landscape is constantly shifting and changing. The expert team at Shibolet’s Planning & Zoning Practice helps clients stay ahead of the curve, mitigating risk, anticipating complications, and unlocking new development opportunities. Our firm specializes in all aspects of law and legislation applicable to real estate projects, from the preparation of city building plans to the submission of applications to local authorities, such as requests for exemptions, changes of building plans, and so on.

We represent clients at all relevant stages and before all applicable administrative commissions and agencies in the planning regulatory process, ranging from identifying opportunities to implementing development plans. We also provide legal opinions wherever necessary to move the process forward.

As no two planning projects are ever the same, our services are tailored to the needs of each client. At Shibolet, innovation is consistently coupled with a wealth of prior experience, and our substantial record of complex cases enables us to anticipate and avoid costly mistakes. In consultation with our entire multidisciplinary team, we can advise clients about the possible risks and difficulties of the regulatory process with unwavering authority, knowledge, and insight.

‘Drawing upon its wider real estate practice, the firm is able to provide full-service advice, including handling financing matters, planning and zoning disputes and construction.
