Conservancy attorneys assist with acquiring conservation lands, constructing large scale wetland restoration projects, providing underserved communities with access to the coast, and implementing urban greening, carbon farming, and many other climate adaptation projects, just to name a few examples. Conservancy attorneys handle a wide variety of legal issues, mostly in the areas of contracts, real property, land use and environmental permitting, and operation of state and local government.  The Conservancy’s legal team is small and coordinated; attorneys manage their own projects and consult with other attorneys as needed. The Attorney will work under the direction of the General Counsel and in coordination with four other Conservancy attorneys. The Attorney will provide oral and written legal advice to Conservancy staff; conduct research; identify legal strategies; negotiate and draft contracts, escrow instructions, and other documents; review and edit staff recommendations for consistency with Division 21 of the Public Resources Code, funding sources and CEQA; assess property acquisition documents, including title reports, environmental assessments, and purchase agreements; review CEQA documents; and track new legislation and case law.
