Three Questions with Megan Rogers
Tell us about something that has shaped your career as a real estate and land use attorney?
I graduated from law school in 2008 and started my law practice at the peak of the Great Recession. My timing could have been better, but I learned a lot from the experience. My path to land use and real estate work wasn’t a straight one. After a clerkship, I moved to Florida and was ready to hit the ground running when the economy started to turn around. I worked on all kinds of developments from polo grounds and country clubs to sewage plants.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
I think the variety of the projects we get to work on is what makes the work we do in land use and real estate law so interesting. It’s about building infrastructure, community, and really lives at the intersection of law and public policy.
What unique experience do you offer your clients?
I’ve worked on both sides of the table as an attorney for cities and for development teams and I use these experiences and insights for the benefit of my clients.
