CEQA Strategy, Analysis, and Compliance

CEQA is a robust environmental law in California that requires state and local agencies to assess the potential environmental impacts of proposed projects and disclose them to the public.

Navigating CEQA can be challenging due to its complex regulations and the potential for controversy surrounding land use decisions. We are experienced attorneys who understand the intricacies of CEQA and have a track record of obtaining and defending land use approvals. Our ability to provide sound legal strategies, carefully monitor the entire process, and adapt innovative solutions has produced countless successful completions for our clients.

Land Use Issues

Land use matters often involve multiple stakeholders, including developers, local government agencies, community groups, and environmental organizations. We craft solutions through creative collaboration, identifying common ground to help our clients achieve their goals while addressing the concerns and interests of all parties involved.

We advise our clients on land use, zoning, and permitting matters in California to promote responsible and sustainable development while navigating the complexities of the legal landscape.
