Richmond counsel Ann Neil Cosby, a lawyer in McGuireWoods’ Real Estate & Land Use Department, was profiled in a June 10 “Getting to Know” Q&A column with the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The interview details Cosby’s career starting as an assistant editor at Virginia Lawyers Weekly to her joining McGuireWoods in July 2015.
When asked about her best business decision, she responded, “Joining McGuireWoods and expanding my land use practice to focus on private development. For many years, I worked with local governments, planning staff and commissioners as they considered zoning and land use cases. I truly enjoyed what I was doing, but wanted to be more involved in the entire development process and advise clients from start to finish. Now I am able to take what I have learned over the years and provide clients with a dual perspective of the process.”
Cosby, who will serve as chairwoman of the Urban Land Institute Virginia beginning July 1, advises businesses and individuals on land use, zoning, subdivision and environmental matters.
