Larkin Hoffman attorneys advise telecommunications companies regarding land use, land acquisition and easements for cellular telephone towers.

Our firm’s longstanding and strong connections with key government officials, policy makers, community organizations and other groups are important to effectiveness in land use issues. Our attorneys help to streamline the process of securing land or easement rights and negotiating the approvals necessary to get a project done.

When land use disputes cannot be resolved at the bargaining table, our real estate litigation team can help. Our real estate litigators have experience handling a full range of land use disputes, including challenges to comprehensive plan amendment, preliminary plat, zoning, variance and conditional use permit denials. Our real estate litigation attorneys are leading practitioners in the state of Minnesota on claims arising under the Minnesota 60-day rule, which requires an agency to grant a zoning request if the agency fails to act on it within 60 days.

When statutory and rule changes are necessary to resolve land use issues, our government relations team can help. At the Minnesota Capitol and before state agencies, our government relations team works hard to make the zoning, development and land use process function better on local, regional and statewide levels. We have a strong reputation at the capitol and a broad base of experience on land use and real estate issues, making our team an effective ally.
