Prior to forming CTP in 1995, Eicholtz had a distinguished legal career and was well known in the real estate development community. In 1987, Eicholtz joined the prominent Florida law firm, Fowler White Gillen Boggs Banker et. al. Eicholtz’ practice was concentrated in the areas of real estate development, including land acquisition, leasing, real estate financing, and land use and zoning law. Over the years, Eicholtz provided clients a full range of administrative, regulatory, and land use representation at all levels of government – local, state, regional and federal. In fact, it is Eicholtz’ legal representation experience that has enabled him to recognize development opportunities for CTP where others felt none existed.
Eicholtz has handled a wide variety of administrative and legislative issues including representation before federal, state, and local administrative agencies. Some of his administrative experience included legislative lobbying.
In addition, Eicholtz has handled the full range of regulatory and environmental matters, including preventative analysis, permitting, contamination assessment, remedial activities and environmental liability and protection. Eicholtz has and continues to work closely with environmental consultants to proactively minimize environmental liabilities on current projects.
As a “dirt lawyer”, Eicholtz represented a variety of developers, including developers of P.U.D.s, office buildings, retail regional malls and strip centers, multi-family apartment projects, warehouses, condominiums, and other types of properties.
Lastly, Eicholtz provided business and commercial representation in all areas subject to governmental action. Such typical representation has included negotiations with local governments, as well as regulatory agencies and commissions, permit approvals, franchises, developments of regional impact, community development districts, land use and zoning.
Again, it is with this background that includes a vast array of legal experiences that Eicholtz is capable of analyzing a complicated set of real estate development issues and facts, and allows Eicholtz to find lucrative land opportunities and projects for CTP to develop and/or redevelop in this ever more crowded real estate development world.
