Dan Bailey has more than 25 years of experience in environmental, land use, real estate, and municipal law. He prides himself on offering pragmatic solutions to complicated legal matters.

Dan also handles all types of real estate transactions. Dan has helped facilitate development of a wide range of commercial real estate projects, ranging from mixed use (retail, office, and housing), multifamily housing, athletic facilities, marinas, and large residential subdivisions. He works regularly with development teams seeking state and local permits. Dan has participated in hundreds of public hearings before state agencies and municipal boards and commissions throughout Massachusetts.
Dan also has experience in all areas of municipal law related to real estate development and sale, including eminent domain, public/private infrastructure financing programs, municipal procurement, and town meeting proceedings.
