Practice Description

If you have a zoning and land use problem in the Atlanta area, you should reach out to an experienced real estate litigation attorney as soon as possible. Zoning disputes are often quite complex; they can involve politics, intricate land ownership histories and wordy contracts. Instead of trying to navigate the multistep zoning litigation process on your own, a zoning litigation attorney will be able to help ensure that your assets and interests are protected throughout any legal proceedings.

At Andersen, Tate & Carr, our Atlanta zoning and land use litigation practice has long been one of the most visible practice areas within our firm, as our attorneys appear regularly in televised public hearings before county and city governments and in the media’s coverage of zoning issues.

We have handled rezoning for some of the largest developments in the Atlanta area, including numerous Developments of Regional Impact (“DRI”), which require additional levels of review by state and regional authorities. Whatever your zoning or land use matter is, our knowledgeable attorneys have the substantive legal knowledge, reputation and experience to handle it.

Types of Atlanta Zoning Litigation Cases We Handle

There are many different types of zoning and land use disputes that can occur at various steps of a construction or real estate project. These disputes can arise in commercial and residential developments, and can often lead to litigation or other legal proceedings. Some of these zoning and land use issues involve:

  • Environmental law disputes
  • Water and Mineral Rights
  • Disputes over land development regulations
  • Appeals to zoning and land use regulations
  • “Green” and Sustainability law disputes

Perhaps more importantly, we also understand that success in zoning and land use matters requires successfully navigating an inherently political process. Our skilled zoning litigation attorneys are involved in local politics on a daily basis and have an intuitive understanding of the political process and “players” in the Atlanta jurisdictions. We are also well versed in working with the neighborhood activists and reporters, which is unavoidable part of the Atlanta zoning litigation process.
