“Our clients are involved in development projects that range from urban mixed use developments and master planned communities, to coastal development and industrial siting. We are also involved in both traditional and renewable energy projects, representing the land use and environmental needs of solar energy companies as well as those in the oil and gas industry,” said Benjamin M. Reznik, Chair of JMBM’s Government, Land Use, Environment and Energy Department and publisher of the California Land Use Blog.

The Best Law Firms ranking is based on client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in the same field, and a formal submission process. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be included.

“We are particularly pleased to be recognized as a Best Law Firm, as it reflects the trust and confidence of our clients and peers,” said Reznik. “More than just steering them through the entitlement and permitting processes, our clients know they can count on us to vigorously advocate for their development projects before government agencies, community groups, and in court, when necessary.”

Reznik and his team are involved in the full spectrum of real estate development entitlements, zoning and environment issues, including frequent appearances before city planning commissions, city councils and other governmental boards and agencies on behalf of real estate development firms and various industries.
