Land Use & CEQA

Our Land Use & CEQA practice is second to none. For over 50 years our attorneys have advised private and public clients on environmental matters, and successfully advocated for their interests before administrative bodies, as well as trial and appellate courts. In those fifty years, the environmental regulatory landscape in California has changed dramatically and practice in this area has become increasingly specialized.

Our Land Use & CEQA attorneys have not only kept pace with these changes, but have positioned themselves as respected thought leaders in this complex arena, authoring the land use, CEQA and subdivision map act chapters of the Miller & Starr, California Real Estate 4th, and providing regular and comprehensive updates through our CEQA Developments and Land Use Developments blogs.

As recognized authorities in their field, they have handled groundbreaking cases in this area not only in the intermediate appellate courts but also in the California Supreme Court and United States Supreme Court. Navigating the environmental landscape in California is challenging for private property owners and developers and public entities alike, and our attorneys have the experience and expertise to guide our clients through this complex and challenging landscape efficiently and successfully.
