LeAnne M. Bremer likes to solve problems. Whether it is obtaining development approvals for clients in the face of opposition from planning staffs or neighbors, drafting complex documentation for mixed-use developments, or finding and presenting the winning argument in a land use appeal before a court, LeAnne appreciates a good challenge. In all cases, she strives to be responsive, positive, and solution-oriented.
LeAnne focuses her practice on land use law, real estate, and government affairs. She is well versed in all land use planning and development issues, including plan review, environmental review, and permitting issues. LeAnne also provides land use regulatory and permitting guidance to clients in the cannabis industry. LeAnne has substantial experience in preparing land use applications and presenting them to decision-makers for approval. A significant part of the permitting process requires LeAnne to negotiate conditions of approval with staff and, at times, challenge conditions attached to development before local decision-makers and in court.
Additionally, LeAnne has extensive experience in growth management legislation and the implications of development and environmental issues for property owners. LeAnne has drafted legislation at both the local and state levels. She has represented private property owners and local and regional businesses in planning and transactional matters regarding sales and acquisitions of real estate and other real estate matters, including drafting covenants, easements, boundary-line adjustments, and condominium documentation.
