Bill Griffith Speaks at University of Wisconsin Law School’s Inaugural Property Rights Symposium


Bill Griffith was a featured panelist at the University of Wisconsin Law School’s first annual “Property Rights and Land Use in Wisconsin” symposium. The event was held Thursday, July 20, 2017 at the law school in Madison.

Bill addressed recent legislative changes affecting property rights and land use laws and the impact they have had in the state. He offered insight into these changes from the perspective of a property owner seeking land use approvals.

The University of Wisconsin Law School held the event to provide updates on legislative changes to professionals whose work deals with property rights and land use law. The school noted that practitioners, judges, planners and administrators who have not closely followed changes in this area of practice will find that the law is no longer what they understood it to be.

He is a trusted advisor on real estate development and public funding for both private clients and municipalities.
