Accomplished And Knowledgeable Waterfront Development Attorneys

Development in New Jersey often requires intensive environmental review and approval in coordination with state agencies, municipalities and regional planning commissions. The limited amount of land that can be developed is often located in environmentally sensitive areas, especially on the waterfront or in close proximity to wetlands.

Our attorneys are extensively experienced with the permitting, assessing and approval process. With more than 80 years of combined experience in the public and private sectors, we have represented either private clients or the state agencies themselves in connection with the following:

  • The Coastal Area Facility Review Act (CAFRA)
  • Waterfront development
  • Flood hazard area (stream encroachment)
  • Riparian zones
  • Coastal and freshwater wetlands
  • Storm water runoff
  • Waste treatment and disposal
  • New Jersey Meadowlands Commission
  • Environmental assessment
  • Takings/inverse condemnation

Sound Representation And Guidance | Protections To Complete Development

The application process for permits and approvals to develop coastal lands and wetland areas is demanding. Project delays are not uncommon, but we are well-versed in the procedures and requirements to keep our clients’ projects moving on schedule and on budget without significant legal delays.

We have represented private clients, municipalities, county boards and regional and state agencies. We know all sides of the issues, and we are prepared to advocate aggressively in your best interests.

Property owners and developers also have rights to challenge permitting decisions. We negotiate hard and resolve most matters in negotiation, but we are prepared to litigate to the appropriate extent in order to secure the necessary approvals and reasonable conditions for your project.
