Areas of Practice
Permitting, Zoning, Land Use and Environmental Matters
Our attorneys work closely with developers, businesses, homeowners, utilities, and abutters on a broad array of permitting and land-use matters that implicate a web of local laws and ordinances. In responding to the actions of zoning boards, obtaining the desired permit from the proper authority, or streamlining the relationships between landowners and environmental commissions, Gallagher & Cavanaugh works with clients to execute their plans. This area of our practice includes:
- Zoning Boards and Permitting Authorities. Our attorneys represent clients before local planning and zoning boards to obtain the appropriate approvals.
- Compliance. Our attorneys have broad experience working on complex statutory compliance matters that involve the oversight of conservation commissions and environmental agencies.
- Environmental Law. Our attorneys handle matters involving many aspects of environmental law and related litigation. Our work has included toxic tort and environmental litigation as well as insurance coverage for environmental claims.
We work with clients concerning state and federal regulatory requirements for responding to contamination.
