Permitting and Compliance

At SBI, we guide our clients through the environmental review and permitting process in a clear, coordinated way that reflects our experience with state and federal environmental regulations. SBI’s staff is experienced in negotiating and preparing permits for clients in both the public and private sectors. Our expertise spans a wide range of legal contexts including the California State and Federal Endangered Species Acts, Clean Water Act, California Environmental Quality Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and California Fish and Game Code. We assist clients with obtaining environmental permits for projects and as they move forward we monitor their progress to ensure they remain in compliance with environmental regulations and permit requirements.

In consultation with our clients, SBI reviews the applicable regulations, identifies potential exemptions or special circumstances, coordinates with government officials, and produces documents supporting our clients’ applications. SBI has developed and maintains positive working relationships with all permitting agencies and can help facilitate a smooth permitting process.
