Speaker: Mitchell A. Korbey
Partner and Chair, Land Use and Zoning Group; Herrick, Feinstein LLP

Mitch Korbey is a partner and chair of the firm’s Land Use & Zoning Group. Mitch is an accomplished urban planner and land use attorney with more than 30 years of experience in private practice and government service. He is a former Commissioner of the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA), a former Director of the Department of City Planning's (DCP) Brooklyn office, and a former Deputy Director of DCP’s Staten Island office.

Mitch has been recognized by Chambers USA as one of New York City’s leading zoning lawyers for the past eight years. He advises clients on a wide range of issues including site acquisitions and assemblages, site development options, zoning lot mergers and development rights transfers, as well as applications for zoning variances, special permits and other discretionary approvals from the BSA, DCP, Department of Buildings, Landmarks Preservation Commission, and other agencies.

Mitch also regularly counsels prominent developers, owners, and lenders on the management of millions of square-feet of New York City real estate. In doing so, he navigates the complexities of the City’s byzantine zoning resolution; guiding clients to the most efficient intersection of their business goals and what the rules will allow. He also keeps clients abreast of political headwinds that could impact their properties or development plans.
