The lawyers at Gilligan, Gooding, Franjola & Batsel, P.A., were involved in a large amount of the growth that occurred in Marion County and surrounding communities during the real estate boom of the first part of this century. We continue to be involved in this area’s growth, redevelopment and evolution.
Our attorneys provide a full range of services related to real estate development, including the sale or acquisition of land for commercial, residential or mixed-use development. We can assist in obtaining comprehensive plan amendments, rezonings and special use permits in Marion County and the surrounding parts of Florida. As a law firm that has significant experience practicing in this area, we are skilled at efficiently obtaining necessary government approvals and permits.
We assist in forming the development entities and provide extensive real estate development
services, including preparation of plats, declarations of covenants and declarations of
condominium. We also represent property owners’ associations (before and after turnover) and developers in post-development disputes.
We recognize that time is often a critical factor in these matters. Our lawyers begin by learning about the project, and we then try to find the shortest path from the initial stages of the project to project completion. Our goal is to efficiently overcome any hurdles that may stand between our clients and the completion of a project.
