Meyers Nave’s expertise in Land Use law is demonstrated by the fact that clients rely on us to advise on their largest, most complicated and often most controversial land use projects, which also often involves addressing associated Environmental Law issues such as those raised by CEQA and NEPA. We serve as lead transaction, compliance and litigation counsel for many of the most innovative and highest profile commercial, industrial, infrastructure, housing, and mixed-use economic development projects undertaken businesses, public entities, and public-private partnerships throughout California. The scope and scale of our expertise is featured in the January 2021 issue of Southern California SuperLawyers magazine in an article titled “In For The Long Haul: When Practice Group Leader Amrit Kulkarni Is Not Catching Waves, He’s Helping Build Big Things.”
