Nossaman LLP

Environment and Land Use

CEQA and NEPA Compliance

Nossaman helps clients navigate the complex maze of state and federal environmental regulations applicable to large development and infrastructure projects. We work closely with clients and outside consultants in devising regulatory compliance strategies and in defending projects against judicial challenges.

Our in-depth understanding of CEQA and other environmental statutes allows our attorneys to create comprehensive planning and environmental documents for development projects that avoid pitfalls and survive court challenges.  We have an exceptional reputation for successfully defending major land use projects when they are challenged in court by local opposition and/or regional, state and federal agencies.

Nossaman assists clients in the preparation of state and federal environmental impact reports and statements. We have successfully defended many development and infrastructure projects against state and federal environmental challenges.

We are especially proud of our established track record of devising CEQA and NEPA compliance strategies and approaches to documentation that avoid litigation. We are equally proud of our ability to devise litigation strategies that allow the timely and on-budget delivery of complex, large-scale development projects.

Since successful defense of environmental documents often depends on pre-litigation counseling, our land use and environmental attorneys focus on compliance and litigation strategies that facilitate timely and cost-effective completion of the environmental regulatory process.
