Beware of Bugs in the Agency's Record

Construct the Record and Build Your Project

Our client needed a legal swat team. Fast. A competing land management company was suing to prevent development of 2.1 million square feet of office space.

Using a common legal tactic, attorneys for the plaintiff sought to "fly-speck" the agency's administrative record, alleging a variety of minor procedural errors. In short, making a mountain out of a molehill.

Attorneys from Beveridge & Diamond, P.C. dug in, working around the clock to mine thousands of pages of documents. By addressing every potential bug, we prevailed on an expedited basis in federal court, thereby preventing lengthy litigation.

Every day's delay to our client's project could have added enormous expense in terms of construction downtime and loss of tenant rents.

As a result of Beveridge & Diamond's diligence, not only did the court reject every challenge to the environmental analysis, but federal regulators publicly renounced our adversary's attempt to fling dirt at our client's record.

For many years, Beveridge & Diamond has served as counsel to public and private agencies, developers, and state DOTs, on projects ranging from roads to land exchanges to housing developments. Let us help you maneuver across the legal landscape.
