Cairncross & Hempelmann
Randall’s practice focuses on real estate acquisition, development, land use permits, and appeals. He works with property owners, developers, consultants and regulatory bodies to obtain land use entitlements and, when necessary, to institute or defend against lawsuits related to land use entitlements, including subdivision approvals, conditional use and special use permits, and other development permits.
Randall is also the Chair of Cairncross & Hempelmann’s Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Group. The TOD Group facilitates transit-oriented development projects near the growing number of light rail and bus rapid transit stations throughout the Puget Sound region. These TOD projects will shape the future of our cities and surrounding areas in exciting ways by minimizing the number of cars on our crowded highways, decreasing the environmental impacts related to traditional car-centric developments, and improving our quality of life by creating compact, mixed-use neighborhoods with convenient access to our expanding transit system. The TOD Group understands the fundamental barriers and opportunities involved in transit-oriented development, and has the expertise in the areas of land use, real estate acquisition and sale, finance, and litigation to help clients make their transit-oriented development projects a reality.
