Christian Browne

After a Contentious Three Years of Legal Battles, Firm Obtains Approval for Subdivision Application

After a process that lasted more than three years, the Firm successfully obtained final subdivision approval from the Village of Rockville Centre Planning Board to permit the construction of a six-home subdivision and new public street. Christian Browne, a Member and Partner with the Firm, represented the developer throughout a contentious approval process that resulted in two separate litigations against the Village. The final approval from the Planning Board allows the developer to file a new subdivision map with the Nassau County Clerk's Office. The developer hopes to break ground on the project this fall.
