LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Environmental and land use law firm The Sohagi Law Group announced today that Partner Nicole Gordon is again among the honorees in the Los Angeles Business Journal’s annual special supplement recognizing the City’s top women attorneys. The Journal’s Publisher and CEO Josh Schimmels writes, “during this challenging time battling the coronavirus, we are relying on our trusted advisers more than ever. In times of uncertainty, lawyers . . . are particularly needed to help our businesses respond and react to issues at hand.”
The Sohagi Law Group’s Founding Partner Margaret Sohagi said, “Nicole is an incredibly talented professional, and she continually demonstrates her capacity to deliver the highest level of strategy and service to the firm’s clients.”
The Publisher explains in the feature, “Los Angeles is truly a national leader when it comes to influential women – and the field of law is no exception.” The honorees have been recognized for “exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and for contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.”
Gordon, who received the honor last year for one of Los Angeles’ Most Influential Women Attorneys, has a practice that involves primarily “advising public agencies on complex environmental and land use planning matters at the administrative, trial and appellate level,” says the special supplement, published today. “She focuses her practice on the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the federal and California Endangered Species Act (ESA) and Planning and Zoning Laws.”
