Endangered Species Act (ESA)

Compliance with the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is a critical issue facing public agencies that deliver services that affect the natural environment. Our attorneys have participated in hundreds of consultations under Section 7 of the ESA and participated in negotiations of habitat conservation plans involving timberlands, water use, transportation, municipal permitting and other types of development.

We have represented clients on critical ESA issues, from California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) evaluations to “take” evaluations and habitat conservation plans, and including federal and state court litigation of these issues and related 5th Amendment takings claims.
