Robin Baral provides counsel to public and private entities in the areas of land use, environmental and water law, and public finance.

Robin’s land use practice focuses on long range planning for cities, counties, water agencies and private developers. He has extensive experience working with developers and local agencies to negotiate development agreements, process specific plans and other complex entitlement packages, conduct environmental review under CEQA and State Planning and Zoning Law, and establish viable tax and public finance mechanisms. He has worked on the planning, permitting, construction and financing of public and private projects totaling in the hundreds of millions of dollars, such as groundwater and surface water treatment projects, solar and wind energy facilities, wastewater treatment plants, water bottling facilities, rail transloading facilities, and waste disposal facilities.

Robin’s environmental expertise is focused on helping clients develop permitting strategies for new and emerging technologies. He is particularly adept at providing strategic counsel in response to state legislative and regulatory mandates, ranging from housing policies to water management, waste disposal and recycling requirements.

Robin also works with developers and local agencies to implement finance mechanisms and ratemaking proceedings, through the adoption of Mello-Roos community facilities districts, impact fees, special assessments, and other voter-approved taxes.
