Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz helped Hollis Hills obtain a comprehensive permit from the Massachusetts Housing Appeals Committee to construct affordable housing in Lunenburg, Massachusetts under the state's Chapter 40B affordable housing law. Mintz appealed the Lunenburg Zoning Board of Appeals’s denial of the application.
Case Study
A bicoastal Mintz team won a trial about a commercial lease for a provider of auction services in the power sports industry. The client saved $4 million in rent payments for the 133,000-square-foot building on eight acres as well as landlord costs.
Case Study
Mintz litigators won an $8.5 million jury verdict for Joe Tecce’s Ristorante in Boston’s North End in a case against the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. The Tecce’s sued over lost sales associated with business disruption during the state-funded “Big Dig” construction project.

Finding the right team to help you use your real estate the way you want, when you want, is critical. We understand that time means money.

We know navigating these issues takes legal and political savvy. We have both. We’ve guided clients to victory in complex real estate matters in state and federal courts for cases concerning large office towers, housing developments, and other commercial and retail properties. Our bicoastal, multidisciplinary team includes litigation, real estate, environmental, and government relations professionals — all dedicated to digging in, resolving issues, and advancing your real estate objectives.
