Our lawyers have worked closely with individuals, businesses and government entities. Whether you are working through an annexation application or negotiating development terms, we understand how to reach the positive results our clients are seeking.
Annexation In Florida
This process of annexing unincorporated property can either be voluntary or through a referendum. Voluntary annexation occurs when all property owners in an area of land sign a petition to have a municipality annex their property. When annexation occurs through referenda, all property owners vote on the annexation, with the outcome determining whether the annexation will occur.
Our attorneys combine large-firm resources with small-firm service to provide advice to businesses and individuals who are either applying for or seeking to block annexation. Additionally, we have provided legal counsel to local government entities. We have particular experience in defending and attacking pending annexations. Having worked on all sides of annexation law, we offer a deeper level of knowledge that few firms can equal.
