Dane Ardente joined the firm in 2023 as an associate attorney specializing in land use and commercial litigation. While he is well-versed in many areas of law, his practice primarily focuses on land use, municipal law and permitting, property, and real estate related disputes, with the occasional property-related constitutional challenge of unconstitutional action or regulation.
He successfully represents clients in all aspects of municipal land development, permitting, review, and appeal procedures in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and proactively advises clients on the appropriate strategy as tailored to their specific needs. When dealing with any aspect of land use regulation, permitting, restrictions, or challenges, Dane understands the necessity of diverging from the traditional “one size fits all” approach to ensure his clients have the best possible chance of success with whatever challenges they may encounter. As a native Rhode Islander, Dane has a thorough understanding of the wide array of disputes and issues that come with owning, purchasing, developing, or preserving property in a state with the least amount of land in the U.S.
Prior to joining DarrowEverett, LLP, Dane obtained invaluable experience in both the public and private sectors, where he focused on the best practices for lawyers who find themselves engaged in complex, multi-layered disputes regarding property and environmental issues between the state and private individuals, as well as private entities. In addition, he has been involved in several cases that have established law and legislative interpretation, such as previously unclear portions of the mechanics’ lien statute which subsequently were made clear in a victory for his clients.
