Peter Flannery practices primarily in the areas of land use and redevelopment law representing residential and mixed-use redevelopers, retail developers and landlords, and industrial operators.  His experience includes appearances before local planning and zoning boards and county, regional and state agencies; the litigation of prerogative writ actions in connection with land use approvals, redevelopment area designations, and zoning and redevelopment plan ordinances; and the negotiation of redevelopment and other development agreements. 

In addition to his wide-ranging land use and redevelopment experience, he also has a strong background in tax exemptions and related financing for redevelopment projects, including the formation and structuring of urban renewal entities and the negotiation of agreements for long term tax exemptions (PILOTs), redevelopment area bond financing, and five year tax abatements and exemptions.
