Land Use Litigation Associate Attorney – 2 to 4 years of experience (Oakland, Los Angeles, or San Diego)


Meyers Nave is a dynamic state-wide firm with 5 offices throughout California.  For over 35 years, we have built a reputation as a “go to” law firm to handle high profile and high stakes matters for both public entities and private sector clients.

Meyers Nave’s Land Use Practice Group is at the forefront of the field.  We serve as lead transactional and litigation counsel for many of the most innovative and highest profile institutional, civil infrastructure and economic development projects undertaken by public agencies, private enterprise and public-private partnerships throughout California.  Our attorneys help clients navigate a myriad of complex and interrelated local, state and federal land use laws and regulations, ranging from CEQA, NEPA and ESA to critical issues regarding general and specific plans, conditional uses and variances, zoning and subdivision, and development agreements and fees.


Meyers Nave is looking for an ambitious second-to-fourth year associate for our fast-moving, in-demand Land Use Practice Group.  Candidates should look forward to – and, in fact, thrive on – the challenge of wrestling with cutting-edge legal issues, appearing in court and taking depositions.  Candidates must have substantive land use/environmental litigation experience, and transactional experience is a benefit.  Prior experience with CEQA and NEPA as an attorney is preferred but not required.  This position is open to our Oakland, Los Angeles and San Diego offices.  Candidates should demonstrate strong work ethic and dedication to the practice of law as well as outstanding writing abilities.


Meyers Nave is committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity.  We place a high value on diversity and inclusion and encourage diverse candidates to apply.  We do not discriminate on the basis of any qualified applicant’s race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, military or veteran status or any other category protected by law.  Meyers Nave will consider for employment qualified applicants with criminal histories in a manner consistent with the Los Angeles Fair Chance Initiative for Hiring.
