Led by Ursillo, Teitz & Ritch Ltd attorneys Andy Teitz and Troy Costa, the firm recently represented the Warren Land Conservation Trust — a private, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1987 to protect open space in Warren — in its acquisition of 25 acres stretching from Route 136 to the Warren River.

The land was generously donated by Karen Burnes of Westport, Massachusetts. UTR has represented the Trust in previous land gifts and served as its outside general counsel on various real estate and permitting issues.

“The acquisition brings the Trust’s holdings to 199.56 acres, and is adjacent to another 1.4 acres of saltmarsh already under Trust stewardship. Combined, these properties will form the Barker Preserve,” outgoing Trust president Michael Gerhardt said Friday.

The Warren Land Conservation Trust preserves and restores land for the benefit of the general public and the conservation of Warren’s natural resources. The Trust recognizes the rich traditions of the native people who lived as one with the land, and acts as stewards of its historic properties, maintaining them as much as possible in their natural state.
