Some land development projects require special legislation to achieve unique business objectives. We draw upon our experience and relationships to help clients overcome obstacles to land use and real estate development, deal with environmental concerns and secure public financing for both private development and public infrastructure projects.

Land development issues affect all of us, from neighbors to builders to governmental entities. We help with everything from zoning challenges to wetland permitting to public financing needs.

We work with clients to resolve land use and real estate issues through statutory and rule changes. At the Minnesota Capitol and in front of state agencies, our team works hard to make the zoning, development and land use processes function better at the local, regional and statewide level. Our firm’s strong connections with key government officials, policy makers, community organizations and other groups enable us to communicate effectively with allies and decision makers. We have a strong reputation at the capitol and a broad base of experience on land use and real estate issues, making our team an effective ally.


Larkin Hoffman lobbyists are experienced at representing our clients’ environmental interests in front of city councils, county boards, regulatory agencies and the state legislature. We understand how the process works, and we are here to lead clients to a successful outcome.

Public Finance

Our government relations team has a proven track record of securing public financing through tax increment finance (TIF), bonding, abatements and other financing methods. We find creative solutions by working with elected officials and public agency staff to solve problems. Through our work, our clients have been able to secure the public support necessary to complete their projects. Our firm’s longstanding and strong connections with key government officials, policy makers, state agencies and other groups at all levels of government contribute to our effectiveness in the area of public finance.
