Attorneys are able to handle financing, development, construction and other matters, including assisting with zoning and land use issues. We frequently represent clients before planning commissions, the Department of Real Estate and other agencies and governing bodies.
We also represent many contractors, subcontractors and building product suppliers and maintain a large network of contacts throughout the industry.
The firm's experienced real estate litigators frequently represent home builders in construction defect, contracting, environmental, insurance and other litigation.
In addition, several of the firm's practice areas support clients from the homebuilding industry in areas ranging from environmental and land use to business and employment. The broad experience of the firm can help home builders develop contracts and form business entities, as well as litigate environmental or insurance issues.
Many home builders currently find themselves exploring options related to green building, whether to develop new products as a market response to growing consumer demand or to take advantage of "fast track" approvals and other opportunities offered by many of the states' governing bodies. Firm attorneys are experienced helping developers and contractors plan, document and implement projects that meet these criteria.
Firm attorneys are active in building industry organizations, including the Home Builders Association of Northern California, U.S. Green Building Council and Build It Green.
