Latham & Watkins LLP fields a nationwide practice that is particularly strong in California and the western states. Areas of expertise include the development of generation and transmission facilities, infrastructure projects, as well as commercial, office, educational and mixed-use sites. Leveraging its experience in environmental law matters, the team reached a settlement on behalf of Newhall Land & Farming, the developers of master-planned community Newhall Ranch; the case included negotiations with environmental groups and the development of an unprecedented greenhouse gas emissions plan. The group, jointly led by Lucinda Starrett, Christopher Garrett and Michael Carroll, welcomed Janice Schneider, formerly Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management at the US Department of the Interior, as the global vice chair of the firm’s environment, land and resources department. Winston Stromberg was promoted to the partnership.
