Grow Your Thriving Community With Accomplished Counsel

Local property dynamics are the heart of society—from new developments and governmental concerns to land use and zoning regulations. As a municipality, private developer, or invested citizen, you care deeply for your community and need experienced, powerhouse representation to support your interests with efficiency and care.

With deep ties throughout Westchester, the Hudson Valley, and the New York City suburbs, the counsel at Marks DiPalermo Wilson supports municipalities, government agencies, and independent contractors in their efforts to encourage long-term growth and sustain economic strength. Our guidance on complex state and local laws, as well as regulations that impact your community, helps to shepherd projects through while also affording the necessary environmental and civil protections.

We have advocated for municipalities of all sizes and complexities—from villages, towns, and counties, stretching from Goshen to the Hamptons. No matter the breadth and scope, we always offer tailored counsel to help you achieve your goals.

Though much of our experience is informed by our work in, with, and alongside municipalities, what truly makes our reputation so strong is our comprehensive efforts across myriad legal and advisory issues. We provide thorough insight into the regulatory, development, and environmental concerns that are paramount to your community.

When local government thrives, so does the community.
