Lessons Learned from Litigating Real Estate Development Projects

December 7, 2017 | 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM CDT

Real estate development projects are filled with uncertainty.   Zoning and permitting denials, disputes with neighboring property owners and citizen groups, and ambiguity in development contracts can cause significant setbacks to even the most well planned developments.  This webinar will explore the many pitfalls of the development process and how to navigate them. Four Polsinelli attorneys offer their guidance and insights gained from litigating these very types of issues.

Key Learning Objectives:
  • Defeating land use challenges and appealing land use denials 
  • The illusory protections that zoning ordinances and approvals provide against liability 
  • Settling land use disputes in the public context, and what makes them unique. 
  • The usual suspects leading to litigation in development deals, such as best effort, time of the essence clauses and “side deals”  or oral “amendments.”
