CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Grillo's Pickles

If you haven't been to the Grillo's Pickles website, you should. There, you'll find the fantastic story of how this company began. We've copied part of it here to save you a click.

Travis would make the pickles by night using his family's 100-year old recipe - one he'd memorized from making pickles every summer as a kid. In the morning, Travis would bike to the Boston Common and set up the cart with his buddies. They'd hang out all day, urging people to try the simple Grillo family pickle.

        advises clients on land use and real estate issues such as zoning, subdivision and planned use districts, and on environmental issues such as wetlands and coastal permitting issues, negotiation of Brownfields Settlement Agreements and development of Brownfields sites, and hazardous materials enforcement issues.

Representation includes site acquisition and due diligence issues, governmental permitting, structuring and negotiation of financing, environmental compliance issues, construction contracting issues, and public trust doctrine issues.

        We also represent municipal and state entities on such matters as the establishment of special port districts and special development districts.
