About Meyers Nave

Meyers Nave’s Land Use and Environmental 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 enterprises 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.
