Environmental Law & Natural Resources

.

Preserving the environment while attempting to accommodate a growing population requires legal knowledge, regulatory finesse and the ability strategize, litigate and negotiate to overcome many hurdles. 

Best Best & Krieger LLP’s Environmental Law & Natural Resources practice is a nationally recognized leader in advising both public agency and private clients on the maze of legal, regulatory and political challenges they face. From sustainability and clean technologies to water conservation projects, recycling facilities, air emissions concerns and a host of other issues, BB&K helps clients resolve environmental concerns, enabling them to move their projects forward and plan for the future. 

Regulatory Compliance 
Our environmental attorneys are adept at managing the interplay of environmental laws, including the California Environmental Quality Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, state and federal clean water, clean air and endangered species acts, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Reliability Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and the Natural Community Conservation Planning Act, among others. With long-standing, effective working relationships with the federal and state agencies that administer these laws, we can streamline assessment reviews, efficiently and cost-effectively obtaining necessary approvals and permits.

Whether a development project involves water rights, water quality, endangered species, air quality or hazardous materials or another environmental issue, we have the regulatory, transactional and litigation experience to resolve matters so that our clients can meet their land use goals while protecting the environment and assuring compliance with all legal requirements and regulatory restrictions. 

Strategic Guidance
We provide practical strategies to both public entity clients, such as cities and water districts, and private entities, including landowners and developers. We assist with: 

  • CEQA and NEPA documentation, including environmental impact reports and environmental impact statements
  • Conservation easements
  • Establishing habitat conservation plans  
  • Government relations and advocacy
  • Land use, zoning and entitlements 
  • Phase I, II and III site audits
  • Pre-project planning and strategy and determination of the required environmental review
  • Project siting, permitting and approvals
  • Remediation
  • Risk management 
  • Solar and other renewable energy proposals and projects
  • Telecommunications projects
  • Water rights, supply and quality
  • Wetlands restrictions 


A Leader on Water Issues 
BB&K is counsel of choice for public agencies that collectively provide water to more than two-thirds of California’s population. Our water law reputation is so substantial that we have brokered water rights disputes between states and have developed water policies internationally. 

Environmental Litigation
With so many competing interests, disputes often arise regarding development of lands and the use of limited natural resources. BB&K’s Environmental Litigation team is among the strongest and most experienced teams in the nation, handling precedent-setting litigation in the defense of environmental project approvals in court and asserting and defending our clients’ interests before the Environmental Protection Agency, the California Public Utilities Commission, the State Water Resources Control Board, Regional Water Quality Control Boards, land use authorities and other local, state and federal agencies. 

How Can Government Relations Help You?

Environmental, water, telecommunications and transportation projects by both public agencies and businesses can benefit from our advocacy services. Let us help you be heard!
