Goodmans Expertise

Municipal, Planning and Property Tax

Our municipal, land development and property tax lawyers are known as strong client advocates with rock-solid credibility among developers and governing bodies alike.  This group is a tribute to Goodmans’ deep roots in the commercial real estate and land development sectors.  Clients trust our smart, practical, solution-driven style, and officials respect our flawless track-record, industry knowledge and straightforward professionalism. 

Clients range from individuals to large corporations, institutions and municipalities.  Projects cover every stage of the development approval process, and extend to special regulatory issues such as environmental, servicing, traffic, market impact, community services, and growth management.  We have an impressive roster of negotiating and structuring successes – in infrastructure finance, municipal assessment and property tax.

The municipal team’s approach is grounded in responsive communication, fairness and credibility – through decades-long relationships with clients and government officials alike.  Goodmans was the first law firm to hire a full-time land-use planner, and now has three on the team.  It’s just another example of our ability to combine creative techniques with successful traditions – all to better serve our clients.
