Troutman Sanders is opening an office in San Francisco on April 1, 2015. This will be the firm’s fourth office on the West Coast, with existing offices in Orange County, San Diego, and Portland. The firm’s San Francisco office will be located in the Financial District at 580 California Street.

The new San Francisco office provides the firm’s Environmental & Natural Resources practice with a unique opportunity to offer a wider range of services to key clients on the numerous environmental issues that arise under California law.

The practice already offers first-rate experience with the California market, advising clients on air quality, water quality, and waste management issues arising under California and federal environmental laws.  Our practice is well-known for its expertise with project development under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).  The practice serves as lead environmental counsel for numerous clients with regard to utility-scale solar, wind, and fossil fuel power plant development and acquisitions, with aggregate values in the billions of dollars.  For several years, our practice has represented national retailers in environmental policy and enforcement matters in negotiation with California district attorneys, the Department of Toxic Substances Control, and local regulators.  Our practice also offers significant experience with Brownfields redevelopment throughout California.  The practice anticipates using the San Francisco office as a springboard to continue and expand this important work for our clients.
