Information

Why Attend?

  • Transactional attorneys: understand the parameters of the entitlement process that could preclude the completion of your transaction
  • Zoning attorneys: update your procedures to accommodate the latest changes in the statutes
  • Trial attorneys: understand the prerequisites to successful zoning litigation

The last four years have seen significant shifts in the statutory framework of zoning law in Virginia. But without a solid grounding in the basic constitutional context of these changes, many practitioners could miss their significance.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

John W. Farrell, McCandlish Lillard / Fairfax

John W. Farrell has over 40 years of experience before county supervisors, planning commissions, and boards of zoning appeals in matters of real estate development, land use, and environmental regulation, including rezoning, site plan, and wetlands approvals. He has represented landowners and developers in innumerable land use and environmental cases and controversies including comprehensive planning, infrastructure financing and bonding, and microbial, asbestos, and lead contamination issues. Among those Mr. Farrell has represented are the applicant in the largest rezoning ever filed in Northern Virginia, which included 26 million square feet of nonresidential space and 2,266 dwelling units. He also has represented dozens of plaintiff/landowners in the Fairfax County C & I and both Loudoun County down-zoning litigations.

Mr. Farrell’s experience on behalf of lenders and borrowers in transactions involving real estate acquisition, construction, and development loans is extensive. This representation has included the acquisition, development, leasing, and sale of mixed-use communities, condominium and residential projects, commercial and retail properties, the sale of REO, negotiation of workouts, and foreclosure of non-performing loans.

Mr. Farrell’s environmental law and regulatory background is considerable and includes matters involving lender liability, CERCLA, RCRA, Clean Air, asbestos, lead, underground storage tanks, wetlands regulation, and the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act.
