Project Development

Attorneys in Paley Rothman’s project development practice group have counseled the developers of several of Montgomery County’s most noteworthy projects, serving as lead counsel in projects valued at nearly $1 billion. We advise developers on matters such as site acquisition, site development, construction, financing (including structured financing, bond financing and state/locality enhanced financing), leasing, sales and dispute resolution matters.

We work closely with clients’ land use and zoning counsel to ensure that all aspects of projects are coordinated and comply with all state and local regulations. Our project development attorneys also have extensive experience in dealing with residential planned communities.

Paley Rothman’s representative development projects include The Washingtonian Center, MedImmune’s World Headquarters and Human Genome Sciences’ headquarters, laboratories and cGMP manufacturing facilities. Several of these projects have been recognized as “Transactions of the Year” by the Greater Washington Commercial Association of Realtors and the Washington Business Journal’s “Best Real Estate Deals.”
