Real Estate, Land Use, and Environmental Litigation


Since our founding in 1979, Davis Malm has been a recognized leader in real estate law, having achieved successful results for developers, landowners, contractors, lessors, lessees, and municipal authorities. We represent clients before municipal, state, and federal agencies regulating land use and at all levels of the court systems. Our attorneys regularly lecture and write on these subjects and are actively involved in advising both the state legislature and regulatory agencies on land use statutes and regulatory matters. Several members of our team previously served on the City of Boston's legal staff, focusing on real estate and land-use matters. Others have served as counsel to several Massachusetts municipalities. Our attorneys include a long-term co-chair of the Boston Bar Association's Real Estate Pro Bono Section, where he has had a major role in establishing the Lawyer for the Day Program at the Boston Housing Court. In 2006, the Supreme Judicial Court honored him with the Adams Pro Bono Publico Award for his work. Our real estate, land use, and environmental law litigators have won a number of landmark real estate cases in the state and federal courts.
