About Meyers Nave

Meyers Nave began in one office with five attorneys focused on one primary area of law. The firm has since expanded across California, with attorneys advising on more than 20 complex fields of law. Meyers Nave serves public entities, businesses, non-profit organizations and public-private partnerships located throughout California, as well as clients based in other states that have interests in California. Amidst its growth and change, the essence of what makes Meyers Nave different remains the same – the firm treats work colleagues as friends and clients as family.
