We are very excited to announce that Carlyn Drivdahl and Peter Landreth have joined our firm as Counsel and that Rob Taboada has been elevated to Partner.
Carlyn practices in the areas of land use, public contracting, and public ethics, with an emphasis on land use entitlements. After working at Best Best & Krieger, Carlyn spent twelve years as a Deputy County Counsel for the County of Tuolumne. Carlyn’s in-house county counsel experience gives Carlyn a deep understanding of the entitlement process and land use litigation. Carlyn’s experience as a government lawyer provides her with insight into how to effectively engage public agencies to proactively resolve issues and ensure our clients’ projects stay on track.
Peter practices in the areas of land use, natural resources, environmental and real estate law, with an emphasis on land use entitlements, resource agency permitting and environmental due diligence. After working at Holland & Knight, Peter spent eight years in various roles at NRG Energy and its predecessor companies, and he brings a wealth of perspective from his time on the client side in the private sector. Peter’s in-house counsel experience gives him first-hand perspective on the many factors our clients have to take into account to achieve their business goals, from legal, political and regulatory risks to financial hurdles to management approvals.
