GdB is a full-service, boutique law firm that caters to municipalities and public agencies. Our specialty is serving as contract City Attorney to various cities in California. As the City Attorney, GdB provides a wide spectrum of services to entirely cover our clients’ needs, including attending council and planning commission meetings, preparing ordinances and resolutions and other various services.
GdB has built an effective general municipal litigation practice on providing our public agency clients with pre-litigation advice, service as trial counsel, representation during mediation and arbitration proceedings and, when necessary, appellate representation.
To accompany our municipal law services, GdB also dedicates a portion of our practice to the area of public finance, particularly in connection with the issuance of tax-exempt securities by public authorities and agencies, municipalities and other government issuers.
Beginning in 1990 with an unusual case involving a proposed professional football stadium to be located in the City of Irwindale, our environmental law and litigation practice has been involved in some of the most interesting environmental issues in California. Since then, GdB helps clients navigate through the CEQA and land use entitlement process, including both document preparation and any subsequent litigation.
At GdB, we have been helping clients navigate the complexities of California redevelopment and redevelopment agency dissolution issues for well over 25 years. In that time, we have represented numerous cities, redevelopment agencies, and successor agencies throughout the state in virtually every aspect of redevelopment and post-redevelopment law. As a result, GdB has become one of California’s forefront redevelopment and post-redevelopment firms.
