Jared Lusk is a partner in our Real Estate practice group and the managing partner for the firm’s Rochester office. The primary focus of his practice is real estate development, renewable energy projects, and municipal law, including planning, zoning and the NY State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA).
I enjoy representing a wide variety of landowners, developers, municipalities, retailers, public utilities, wind and other energy producers and developers throughout the country. Having formerly served as town attorney managing land use matters for the Town of Pittsford, New York, I’m well-versed in the state’s various land use and zoning regulations. I help my clients with all types of real estate transactions and help them comply with SEQRA, the Adirondack Park Agency Act and other applicable land use regulations so that projects receive the municipal approvals necessary to become reality, often in the face of significant opposition from neighbors or local governments.
Building on my experience growing up on a small family dairy farm in Upstate New York, I also enjoy working in virtually all aspects of the agribusiness industry, ranging from farm leases to the development and financing of renewable energy facilities on dairy farms throughout the United States.
Through relationships built during my 34-year service as a volunteer firefighter, I’m also proud to represent a number of fire and emergency service providers.
We are seeing significant investment in wireless telecommunications infrastructure, renewable energy, and agribusiness industries across the country. It’s rewarding to work on projects that connect communities to the latest technology.
