Our law firm assists in-state and out-of-state individuals, business and lenders in all aspects of real estate transactions.
Vermont has one of the nation’s most extensive land use and permitting schemes, which is layered over local regulations and state statutes. These regulations can create an almost impenetrable maze for businesses (and sometimes individuals) planning to locate, relocate or expand in Vermont, and attempting to unravel this maze without a full knowledge of the various limitations can be extremely frustrating and time consuming.
Robin Stern, one of the firm’s partners, has served as an Alternate Commissioner of the regional state land use board and as chair of the Vermont Bar Association’s Real Property Committee. This experience gives her great knowledge and insight with respect to land use matters.
Stephen Phillips, another firm partner, has been an active Real Estate attorney in Vermont since 1987, representing sellers, buyers, lenders and borrowers in both residential and commercial transactions.
Another of the firm’s partners, David Dunn, has a Masters in Environmental Law from Vermont Law School . His experience provides additional support to this area of the firm’s practice.
