Land Use & Development Counsel

John Shubin is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of The Euclid Group and the Managing Partner of the Shubin Law Group, P.A. His skill sets combine deep experience in the conceptualization and approval of large-scale real estate projects and, when required, the representation of clients in legal and administrative disputes over the approval of those projects.

As both a practicing lawyer and strategic advisor, John has worked with and represented every variety of stakeholder in the development and “highest and best use” process – real estate owners, developers, investors, lenders, affected parties, and local governments.

The Euclid Group was founded upon the belief that bringing together best in class public administrators, planning and zoning officials, elected officials, and academics, and combining them with the experience of land use lawyers and litigators would offer clients a unique set of talents to either complement their existing professionals or design and execute solutions to complex entitlement challenges.

Combining these valuable practical skills with a deep academic interest in the regulation of natural resources, John guides The Euclid Group’s professionals and thought leaders in their fulfillment of client’s objectives. He regularly lectures on land use issues and has a long-standing interest in the pursuit of research addressing the intersection of natural resources and government regulation and the political realities associated with the interaction of these sectors.

John is a South Florida native whose practice has included work throughout Florida and in numerous jurisdictions around the country, and has served in numerous leadership positions for such distinguished nonprofit institutions as HistoryMiami, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, and Ransom-Everglades School.
