Paladin Law Group’s attorneys have been on the cutting edge of environmental issues long before going green became chic. The firm’s lawyers and sustainability professionals, who hail from prominent national law firms and consultancies, have created a sustainable, local business model where clients can hire the talent of an internationally recognized firm yet receive the personal service and comfort of a small firm.

Environmental law is and always has been our primary focus. We are not corporate lawyers trying to get in front of the Cleantech wave.  We are environmental lawyers who also have deep corporate expertise.  We truly understand the legal and technical laws and regulations necessary to navigate our clients’ emerging products to market, an act we believe is important to our future given the products that our clients create.

Accordingly, we are committed to the entrepreneurs we represent and truly believe in their businesses.  We share with our clients a common objective and strong resolve to further the Cleantech Revolution and the value of the nexus of people, planet and profit.  We represent companies from start up to Fortune 500 on matters including green construction and retrofitting of buildings, biofuels research and production, wind and solar energy production and transmission, clean vehicles, energy efficiency, recycling of organic and inorganic materials, Brownfields remediation, in-fill redevelopment, mass transit oriented development, fuel cells, water technology, biological solutions, and many other activities associated with reducing our carbon footprint.

Paladin’s Cleantech and Energy Practice helps clients navigate through a wide variety of often complex and time critical corporate law matters with efficient, effective and forward thinking counsel.  We specialize in emerging company formation, venture capital and angel investment financing, securities transactions, debt financing, Regulation FD and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, taxation, international supply chain development, green marketing, power purchase agreements, and both state and federal policy.

We also have experience representing clients before legislative and administrative bodies engaged in legislation, rule making and adjudication; licensing and permitting by federal, state and local governments; obtaining environmental approvals and compliance; advice concerning real estate and construction, including land use, eminent domain, green certification; and litigation. We have useful relationships and credibility with elected and appointed officials in federal, state and local government that we often utilize to help our clients achieve economic, social, and environmental success.

Paladin Law Group also offers clients renowned sustainability and environmental practices that help some of California’s most successful and innovative businesses and local governments create, develop, and capture a competitive edge.
