Cuddy & Feder LLP is pleased to announce that 13 of its attorneys have been selected to the 2018 Super Lawyers list. Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.
Many municipalities are updating local laws to reflect the changing climate conditions and improve the community’s resilience. For permit administrators and municipal staff, adapting to the changing times is necessary to ensure resilience of new projects, mitigate the adverse impacts new development will have on neighboring properties, and prevent substantial damage to municipal systems and private property.
