The Lawyer’s Guide to Successful Development Applications, CLE

August 2020 – Partner Jason Tuvel participated in NJICLE’s expert panel on “Land Use Development Applications,” educating fellow attorneys on the complexities of land use law in the State of New Jersey. During the session, attorneys shared the maze of hearings and paperwork and pursuit of approvals for some clients.

Projects may require municipal, county or state approval. Clients rely on the knowledge and preparation of their experienced land use attorneys to lead them through this difficult process. The ability to anticipate roadblocks, understand the timing and the inter-workings of New Jersey planning and zoning boards is how we provide value to our clients.

We are proud to have our Partner Jason Tuvel lend his knowledge and expertise to this education session. For NJICLE members, you can purchase this continuing education on-demand video course at NJICLE.
