Featured Member: Briscoe Ivester & Bazel LLP

In 1982, a small band of Bay Area business and civic leaders, among them Charlie Roberts, Frank Boerger, Angelo Syracusa, Bill Dutra and John Briscoe formed the Bay Planning Coalition.  Briscoe and his firm have been cogs of the Coalition ever since.  Briscoe served on the board for 29 years, twice as its president.  Dave Ivester, who chaired several committees during those years, now serves on the board, and is its president.

The lawyers of Briscoe Ivester & Bazel have also represented the Bay Planning Coalition in administrative and judicial proceedings on issues crucial to the Coalition’s members.  And they have served as counsel for many of the Coalition’s members.  Their work has included maritime projects such as the Port of Richmond’s Honda Terminal and Port of Oakland developments, and shoreline and landside projects such as Dublin Ranch, Mare Island, Redwood Shores, Richmond’s Terminal One, Oracle projects and the Golden State Warriors Arena proposed for Piers 30 and 32 in San Francisco. 
Briscoe Ivester & Bazel’s lawyers have worked overseas for the United Nations, Kuwait, Ethiopia, South Korea, and sea-level-besieged small-island nations such as Palau.  But the firm’s bread-and-butter practice is representing private and public clients before federal, state, and local agencies, including the Corps of Engineers, EPA, BCDC, state and regional water boards, State Lands Commission, Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Coastal Commission—and, of course, against those agencies in court, when necessary.
