Cummins & White, LLP’s land use lawyers has a unique understanding of the complexity of land use projects in California. This understanding is formed, in part, by the firm’s historic commitment to representing public agencies over the past 18 years. The recent addition of two lawyers with extensive background representing public agencies adds to Cummins & White’s already capable team of lawyers with public agency expertise. This depth of experience, and understanding of how public agencies operate, can be crucial to the successful entitlement of a project, whether that project is pursued by a private party, a public agency or jointly by public-private partnership.
