Land Use Litigation

Connecticut Land Use Compliance And Litigation Attorneys

Defending communities against land use lawsuits is part of our business at Regnier, Taylor, Curran & Eddy of Hartford. In recent years, with the downturn in construction, companies in trouble have filed claims against cities and school districts to recoup losses. Many cities have banded together under CIRMA (Connecticut Interlocal Risk Management Agency), and we work with CIRMA members to defend against land use suits.

Our firm is uniquely positioned to guide you through this labyrinth and to defend your interests. We have been representing municipalities and developers in land use regulations and litigation for decades. Our lawyers have represented cities, counties, builders, developers, property owners, property abutters and neighborhood associations.

Developments have included every kind of commercial and residential development: residential subdivisions, affordable housing projects, retail stores, malls and mini-malls, restaurants, nonprofit operations and residential facilities. We have successful experience complying with environmental regulations involving wetlands and Title V issues.
