HunterMaclean is at the forefront of commercial development in Savannah, St. Simons Island, and the coastal Georgia region. Zoning and land use are part of a comprehensive real estate practice that also encompasses economic development, commercial real estate, construction, environmental law, affordable housing, government relations, and commercial finance.
