The Trenti Law Firm Serving Northeastern Minnesota With Over 145+ Years of Collective Experience

Protecting Your Rights

A careful review of land use issues (both real and potential) is an essential step during purchase or sale of businesses and real property, as well as in financing transactions. We are able to identify land use issues at an early stage in transactions, thereby helping to protect our clients from unanticipated costs and risks. Whenever possible, we develop creative solutions to land use problems that otherwise could frustrate business transactions.

The Trenti Law Firm Can Help

Although we emphasize communication and negotiation in conflict resolution, there are times when litigation is the only practical means of protecting our clients’ interests. We possess the legal and technical knowledge necessary to skillfully and cost-effectively manage land use cases. We recognize that many cases will ultimately be resolved before administrative bodies and the court system, and we strategize accordingly. This helps our clients to prevail at the local level (before planning commissions, city councils, and county boards) as well as on appeal before administrative bodies or the courts.
