Speaking Engagements

Due to their breadth and depth of knowledge and experience in all areas of public law, our attorneys are recognized as experts across the state and are frequently asked to speak at conferences and meetings.

We regularly speak at workshops and seminars organized by professional and public agency associations such as the League of California Cities, California Special Districts Association, California Redevelopment Association, California Debt and Investment Advisory Committee, the California Public Employers Labor Relations Association and the State Bar of California.
At the national level, several Meyers Nave attorneys have presented seminars at the annual conferences of the American Bar Association, the National Public Employers Labor Relations Association, the Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents, the International Municipal Lawyers Association and the International City/County Management Association, to name a few.
 
Our attorneys also speak at events and seminars organized by regional bar associations and private education service providers such as Lorman and CLE International.  In addition, some of our attorneys lecture at local colleges and universities such as the University of California at Berkeley and Davis.
 
If you are interested in requesting one of our lawyers as a speaker at your upcoming event, please email us at info@meyersnave.com.

The use of technology and social media has created an opportunity for the emergence of a "sharing economy." Sharing economy businesses include: car sharing, ridesharing, shared housing, and shared workspaces. They connect people offering a supply of goods/services with users who seek goods/services. These sharing economy businesses can present regulatory challenges in that many cities do not have regulations addressing these business models. Accordingly, cities struggle to fit these businesses into their existing regulations.
