Practice group leader of Shepard Mullin's real estate, land use, natural resources and environmental practice
Handles a wide range of state and federal regulatory matters
Previously worked as an urban planner in Boston
Keith Garner is a partner and practice group leader of the real estate, land use, natural resources and environmental practice group in the San Francisco office of Sheppard Mullin.
Garner’s practice focuses on state and federal environmental laws, land use planning and entitlement procedures, and natural resources permitting for large residential, commercial and mixed-use communities and energy generation and transmission projects, including wind and solar facilities.
He provides legal and strategic planning advice to clients at every stage of the complex development process, including due diligence for land acquisition, project planning and permitting, regulatory compliance and land use litigation. He handles a wide range of state and federal regulatory matters, including endangered species, wetlands, water quality and land use issues, environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act and the National Environmental Policy Act. National Historic Preservation Act compliance and public trust issues.
Prior to joining Sheppard Mullin in 2001, Garner worked as an urban planner in Boston and as a research fellow at the Harvard University Center for Urban Development Studies. There, he participated in international development and research projects in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.
These are some of the reasons that we named Garner to our California grouping of Lawyers in Real Estate. These are real estate attorneys who have distinguished themselves in both their practice and the larger community.
