Land Use & Entitlements

Glaser Weil’s Real Estate Department provides clients with a full range of land use, subdivision and entitlement services that real estate developers may need to ensure that their projects are completed as smoothly and expeditiously as possible. Our real estate lawyers’ attention to their client’s needs, as well as their commanding legal know how and fined-tuned attention to detail, help developers successfully steer through the arduous, complex and difficult landscape of local and state rules, regulations and laws that govern many land use projects.

Glaser Weil also provides zoning and planning work, analysis, municipal master planning and subdivision work in connection with clients’ development projects. We counsel clients of all sizes and across all sectors. These include individual developers, bank asset departments, local agencies and nonprofits, as well as the largest privately funded development in the United States, CityCenter in Las Vegas.

The Firm’s land use group’s proven track record of working proactively with the various governmental agencies that potentially may impact a project’s outcome is invaluable to our real estate clients. These entities include counties, cities, special districts and redevelopment agencies, as well as state agencies such as the California Coastal Commission.

Glaser Weil’s real estate clients also turn to our attorneys because of our extensive experience with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), both in reviewing documentation for compliance with CEQA/NEPA and advising clients and agencies as to appropriate compliance methods.
