Lucinda StarrettLatham & Watkins LLP

The considerable land use and zoning offering at Latham & Watkins LLP has significant presences on either coast, with strong teams in Los Angeles, San Diego and Washington DC. Attorneys have local expertise and experience, while frequently forming multi-jurisdictional and multi-disciplinary teams to assist clients through the duration of complex real estate projects across the country. A major strength of the practice is at the intersection of land use and zoning and environmental law, James Arnone in Los Angeles and Janice Schneider in Washington DC are key names in that respect. They coordinate the group with co-chairs of the firm’s project siting and approvals group, LA-based Stacey VanBelleghem and Duncan Moore in DC. George Mihlsten‘s vast experience in securing regulatory approvals for large-scale developments and guiding large teams on innovative resource-heavy projects stands him out as one of the leading names in the Californian market, while Lucinda Starrett is a top attorney for entitlement work in the region; both are based in LA. Tommy Beaudreau left in June 2021 after being sworn in as Deputy Secretary for the Department of the Interior, and Christopher Garrett  retired in November 2020.
