He graduated magna cum laude from Stonehill College in 1972 and cum laude from Suffolk University Law School in 1977 where he was a member of the Suffolk University Law Review.

Mr. Studer’s practice concentrates on the representation of municipalities and developers in all aspects of the local zoning and land use permitting process, as well as the permitting process of various state and federal agencies, such as the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of engineers.
