Benjamin Rubin

Partner, Land Use and Environmental
Nossaman LLP

As a partner with the law firm of Nossaman LLP, I assist developers, public agencies, landowners, and corporate clients on a variety of complex land use and condemnation related matters, including matters dealing with the Federal and State Endangered Species Act, the Federal Telecommunications Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the National Historic Preservation Act, the California Environmental Quality Act, the California Coastal Act, the California Permit Streamlining Act, the California Mitigation Fee Act, and the Federal and State Constitutions.  These matters generally involve federal and state permitting issues, local zoning issues and variances, environmental planning and compliance, and valuation of property interests.  Prior to joining Nossaman, I clerked for the Honorable Andrew J. Guilford, United States District Judge, and served as an intern for the Honorable Patrick J. Walsh, United States Magistrate Judge.
