Land Use & Eminent Domain

Resource Law

Land use often requires a balance to be struck between the needs of progress and the conservation of the Planet’s precious resources.   We understand that balance and the critical role the development community plays in that equation.  Newmeyer Dillion assists developers in navigating this often challenging regulatory environment.  We have extensive experience obtaining Coastal Development Permits, Streambed Alteration Agreements, Section 404 Permits, Porter Cologne Act clearances, and permits under both the federal and state Endangered Species Acts.  We work closely with the developer and governmental representatives to arrive at mutually agreeable paths to permit approvals.  We have extensive experience litigation resource law issues in both state and federal courts.
