Edward (Ed) Grutzmacher represents public entities and private clients in all stages of land use entitlements, from initial application through final administrative action. He also has extensive experience in litigation arising from land use entitlements, including cases involving the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the State Planning and Zoning Law, the Coastal Act, the Subdivision Map Act, the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Act and the Mitigation Fee Act.

Ed’s land use and litigation practices are complemented by his knowledge of the legal issues surrounding climate change legislation and policy. He regularly advises clients on climate change questions, and has been involved in both evaluating emerging greenhouse gas regulations and analyzing and developing strategies to address the impacts of the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32, SB 32) on land use entitlement processing.

Ed is also involved in the burgeoning field of medical and recreational marijuana regulation, advising clients on land use regulations and environmental issues affecting these new industries.
