March 22, 2023 – Shareholders Beth Collins, Chris Guillen and Josh Rabinowitz have been recognized by the Pacific Coast Business Times in its 2023 Who’s Who in Commercial Real Estate & Construction special section.
As chair of the firm’s California Real Estate and Land Use Group, Collins handles high-profile, large and controversial land use matters along the Central Coast and throughout California. She formulates strategies that help her clients—landowners, public agencies and institutions, energy companies and battery storage developers—navigate all stages of the development process from application through construction. Whether considering a property acquisition, developing property or defending a permit in litigation, Collins brings a rare blend of significant entitlement, transactional and litigation experience.
With combined experience in regulation and litigation, Guillen acts as a trusted advisor on complex natural resources projects. His expertise spans the intersection of land use and water law, with a particular emphasis in the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). He relies on his unique experience to provide strategic counsel to landowners, developers, agricultural interests and energy companies on environmental review under CEQA and land use permitting requirements during all phases of project development and litigation.
A leading southern California real estate and business attorney, Rabinowitz has more than 25 years of experience handling complex transactions. His practice focuses on all aspects of real property matters from leases and purchase and sale agreements to easements and boundary issues. Representing several of the region’s leading shopping centers and large property owners, he handles both commercial and high-end residential transactions. He also counsels emerging and established companies through all phases of their business—entity formation, financing, planning, negotiating and drafting contracts and mergers and acquisitions.
