Nossaman LLP

Firm Overview

Our Focus

Nossaman is an innovative mid-sized law firm working on cutting-edge issues across eight U.S. offices. Our expertise is focused in distinct areas of law and policy, as well as in specific industries. With a strong foundation in California, we have built nationally recognized practices in infrastructure, litigation, healthcare, environment and real estate, public policy, and corporate law.

The Firm has been an industry leader in California for seven decades. We know the land, the law, the courts, and the lawmakers. We also know the issues, from local bank failures and congested highways, to environmental conservation issues and scarce water supply. Nossaman is helping to solve many of the complex challenges public agencies and companies doing business in California face today.

Additionally, we offer strong capabilities in Washington, DC, resulting from a strategic merger that expanded the Firm's depth in several core areas including public policy, environmental permitting and litigation, and infrastructure. Nossaman attorneys in the capital monitor regulatory and legislative developments that affect clients' economic and legal interests and present clients' views on these issues to Members of Congress and Administration officials so that they are considered when decisions are made. We also specialize in administrative law proceedings before the agencies and the courts.

Our People

Our ranks include former elected officials and prominent business leaders – people who have helped to shape the legislative, legal, and regulatory landscape. Our lawyers have distinguished themselves in numerous areas of practice, receiving recognition from a wide variety of legal and industry publications. Many of our attorneys are perennially rated among the best in their areas by Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business®, and our Infrastructure and Environment and Land Use Practice Groups are regularly recognized as “Practice Groups of the Year” by Law360. Additionally, in-house counsel recognized Nossaman for its outstanding client focus, in an independent annual survey conducted by The BTI Consulting Group.

We utilize a multi-disciplinary approach that combines the skill and experience of our litigators, transactional attorneys, and state and federal policy advisors to achieve clients' goals. We build lasting relationships and are committed to supporting clients at all times, as they adjust to changes in their markets and the regulatory landscape. We are also committed to the ongoing development of our people, which is reflected in our recognition as a 2018 Vault Best Midsize Firm to Work For.

The National Law Journal has named Nossaman to its  “Midsize Hot List” four times — a special feature that highlights 20 leading midsize law firms across the country.
