CEQA/NEPA

At Allen Matkins, our land use attorneys represent clients on a broad range of complex and quickly evolving issues related to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which appear in almost every discretionary project approval in California.

The CEQA and NEPA processes can dramatically increase project costs, and these statutes are some of the most commonly used weapons for those challenging a project. We counsel and work with our clients to formulate effective strategies to minimize these risks.

Allen Matkins attorneys have extensive knowledge of the regulatory climate surrounding CEQA and NEPA as well as in-depth experience dealing with community concerns relating to the environmental and political aspects of projects. We frequently enable our clients to proceed with their projects without controversy.
