LAND USE

RESOLVING LAND USE CHALLENGES

Developers, property owners, and investors are well aware of how complex land use regulations can negatively affect the progress of their projects.  Attaining government approvals and entitlements becomes much simpler when working with the experienced land use attorneys at Gresham Savage.

Whether your project is ground up construction or reuse of an existing site, our attorneys manage the legal details so you can focus on project development.  Gresham Savage can support you throughout the entire development process, from initial environmental due diligence to the acquisition of land use approvals that help maximize the use of the property.  With a firm history spanning more than 100 years, our attorneys have the expertise, agency connections, and legal knowledge to handle any matter effectively and efficiently.

BROAD EXPERIENCE WITH ALL TYPES OF DEVELOPMENT

Gresham Savage can help you satisfy the requirements of any law at the local, state, or federal level.  We are experts in the California Environmental Quality Act, a law that few attorneys know as thoroughly as we do.  In addition, our attorneys are well-versed in the details of the California Planning and Zoning Law.  We appear at hearings on behalf of project proponents and are able to secure highly contested land use approvals in jurisdictions throughout the state.  We have also defended numerous lawsuits filed in opposition to our clients’ projects and regularly appear before trial and appellate courts.

Over the years, our attorneys have had the privilege of assisting one of the largest national retailers with site acquisition and planning, government approvals, and environmental analysis for nearly every store opening in Southern and Central California.  We have also represented one of the biggest freight railroad networks in the country.
