Developers. He has assisted developers in developing their project concepts, conducting project charrettes and zoning large scale mixed use projects. He drafts the governance documents and codes for complex, new and retrofitted communities. He helps purchasers understand the impact of new, green building legislation and green leases. Dan helps his developer clients utilize and create new utility structures for more sustainable power and water. He assists them in negotiating with agencies on contamination, wetlands, historic resources and endangered species issues as well.

Localities. He helps localities create new codes utilizing form-based coding, the SmartCode and sustainability provisions. He assists in the design of infill upgrades and complex zoning approaches such as “planned densification” necessary for modern transit oriented development.

Professionals. Dan works with a wide range of professionals - doctors, lawyers, architects, planners and consultants – in designing and implementing unusual projects and new business approaches. He provides advice on entity structure, intellectual property, contracts and new market considerations.
