A Law Firm Partnering With Redevelopers

Cities are always changing in order to stay vibrant and meet the needs of those who live there. As a developer, you have an opportunity to shape these changes and make a lucrative investment in the future or an area.

Unfortunately, redevelopment projects can be slowed and even undone by bureaucracy and red tape. That’s where we come in. At Carlin, Ward, Ash & Heiart LLC, we work closely with developers at all stages to help bring their vision to life.

Partnering With Redevelopers

Our skilled lawyers are ready to partner with you on nearly any aspect of your project, including:

Redevelopment plans: We will help you draft and revise your redevelopment plan to put forth a strong proposal with a higher chance of approval. We can also help you solve logistical challenges during the planning stages, thereby saving time and money later on.

Redevelopment agreements: These agreements between the redeveloper and the municipality must be well-written, detailed, unambiguous and legally sound. Our firm can help you draft and revise your agreement until it meets the needs of all parties involved.

Challenging redevelopment designations: Under New Jersey’s Local Redevelopment And Housing Law, city councils and other regulatory bodies can designate “areas in need of redevelopment.” If you own an existing building in the area, this could greatly disrupt your business and even lead to an eminent domain action. Our attorneys can help you challenge a redevelopment designation and protect the business you have worked so hard to build.

Redeveloper status: A property in redevelopment needs someone to oversee the project. We can help you seek designation as the named redeveloper on a given property.
