We are leaders in the field of wetlands and endangered species law and regulation. We assist residential and commercial developers, renewable energy companies, agricultural enterprises, mining companies, mitigation bankers, and water districts with some of the most challenging projects in California. Our expertise includes habitat conservation planning, Section 7 consultations, alternatives analyses under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, jurisdictional determinations, negotiation of conservation easements, the establishment of conservation banks and in-lieu fee programs, negotiation of safe harbor agreements, and the defense of actions brought under the Endangered Species Act. We are also experts in all relevant companion statutes, including the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, National Environmental Policy act (NEPA), Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), Sections 1602 and 2081 of the California Fish and Game Code, and Section 401 of the Clean Water Act. Our contacts with the regulatory agencies are excellent, and we are known throughout California as pragmatic advisors who can achieve a successful result.
