Attorneys at High Swartz LLP have extensive experience in zoning, subdivision, land development, building permit, and related approval processes. The firm's long history in Montgomery County provides an intimate knowledge of the workings of the County government and its local communities. In addition, we have significant experience in other southeastern Pennsylvania counties, including Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, and Berks Counties. Our familiarity with local governmental bodies and other approval agencies in each of these counties enhances our ability to advocate for the needs of our real estate development clients.
Whenever possible, we approach the land development approval process as a consensus-building effort. We attempt to work with each municipality and its residents in order to achieve support for or mitigate opposition to a project during the approval process. However, if necessary, we are prepared to litigate development approval issues and the rights of our clients to assure that laws governing the approval process are administered and applied appropriately.
