Boston Law Firm Sullivan & Worcester Launches Permitting and Land Use Practice

Boston, MA-based law firm Sullivan & Worcester, LLP has launched a permitting and land use practice to provide real estate developers with coordinated counsel related to legal, environmental and financial issues. Jennifer Schultz will lead the new practice group.

Sullivan & Worcester, LLP’s land-use attorneys assist clients in obtaining permits – from local to state to federal – for complex real estate development projects and provide representation in administrative enforcement matters and land-use litigation. The firm works with developers, landowners, lenders, investors and institutions in addressing land use laws affecting planning and zoning, environmental and historical impact reviews, coastal zone management, wetlands and waterways, brownfields, solid, hazardous and municipal waste, public lands and endangered species.

In the past year, Sullivan & Worcester, LLP’s permitting and land use team managed permitting of nearly 10 million square feet of new development in Boston and Somerville combined; more than 80% of that space is for life science development.
