Miller Starr Regalia (MSR), a preeminent California real estate law firm for more than 50 years, announced today that CEQA Developments has been recognized in the Global Top 200 Law Firm Blogs list by Practice Source and House of Butter.

“It’s an honor for our firm, and personally gratifying to me, for our CEQA blog to receive this recognition as a leading publication. For me, it has definitely been a labor – mostly of love –for these past 11-plus years trying to keep up with and capture all the published cases, statutes and other developments related to our State’s signature environmental law. These important legal developments profoundly impact our State’s built and natural environments, as well as our clients’ businesses, properties, and jurisdictions, and we seek to timely share those developments and our insights with our clients, CEQA practitioners, and interested stakeholders and members of the public” said MSR shareholder Arthur F. Coon, who is the principal author and curator of the blog’s posts. “We look forward to continuing the blog’s mission to examine relevant CEQA developments and their important implications for our State.”
