 Practice Areas


REAL PROPERTY TRANSACTIONs 

RLG represents both commercial and residential property owners concerning: Boundaries, brokers, construction, contracts, CC&R’s, disclosures, easements, evictions, financing, improvements, landlord-tenant, leasing, permits, sales, and title. We strive to draft documents in a timely and collaborative manner. 


REAL ESTATE Litigation

RLG’s litigation practice mirrors the areas covered by our transactional practice. Due to its adversarial nature, litigation is both expensive and uncertain. Accordingly, we endeavor to resolve cases at the earliest opportunity, usually in mediation. Our transaction experience makes us particularly well-suited to understand the process from start to finish. We are keenly aware that there are times when only a final decision by a court will resolve a dispute. In those times we dedicate ourselves to achieving client goals.   


LAND USE

RLG represents both commercial and residential property owners before public agencies as part of the entitlement process. We specialize in matters involving:  Planning approvals, code enforcement, conditional use permits, building permits, general plans, house elements, tree and view claims, California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), Subdivision Map Act, Mitigation Free Act, Public Records Act, and Ralph M. Brown Act. Land use matters often represent the confluence between law and politics. As long-term residents of Marin County, the attorneys at RLG utilize their local knowledge to achieve client results.


BUSINESS TRANSACTIONs & LITIGATION 

RLG acts as general counsel for business clients, handling a variety of legal issues:  contracts, document review, entity formations, and structuring sales and acquisitions.
