Uniquely Qualified to Represent Clients in all Land Use Matters

We can help you to understand the complex land use laws in your jurisdiction.

The attorneys in Parsons Behle & Latimer’s Land Use practice group have unparalleled experience representing commercial, industrial, and residential developers and land owners, as well as municipalities and government agencies, on a wide spectrum of land use, zoning, entitlement and development issues. Such representation includes assisting private clients with resolving zoning disputes, assessing vested rights, applying for subdivision or zoning approvals, interpreting zoning ordinances and general plans, and negotiating development agreements with local jurisdictions. Our representation of clients in land use matters often includes speaking before zoning boards, city and county councils, and planning commissions; meeting with city officials; and helping clients to navigate the unique administrative proceedings of each local jurisdiction.

Our land use attorneys also have experience assisting local municipalities to draft, enact, and enforce land use and zoning ordinances. Attorneys in our Land Use practice group are active in community development groups, planning commissions, and land use appeals boards and have strong relationships with city managers, local government officials, and the Utah Office of the Property Rights Ombudsman.
