Harding Larmore Kutcher & Kozal, LLP is a law firm representing developers, property owners and institutional lenders in land use and real estate transactions.
Our land use practice ranges from Development Agreements for complex projects to permits and approvals for smaller projects and businesses. Our real estate transactional practice is equally broad in scope, including financing, purchases and sales, and leasing.
While we actively practice throughout Southern California, we bring a unique level of expertise to clients needing legal assistance in the City of Santa Monica.
Unlike any other law firm, our attorneys have, for over 30 years, been intimately involved in analyzing, monitoring, commenting on, and applying land use regulations proposed and adopted by the City, including land use, circulation, housing and historic preservation elements of the City’s general plan, zoning, and other related ordinances, and rent control regulations.
We have represented hundreds of clients before the Santa Monica City Council, Planning Commission, Landmarks Commission, Rent Control Board and other boards and commissions, and in public meetings with neighborhood groups.
These activities, as well as our extensive civic engagement, give us a wealth of knowledge and experience that cannot be matched by any other law firm and the ability to provide sound strategic counsel as well as sophisticated legal advice.
