California Wine Law
Napa Winery Lawyer
The Law Firm of Campbell, Lauter & Murphy is a law firm specializing in the areas of law important to wineries and the hospitality industry throughout California. Our experience speaks for itself in the areas of real estate development and land acquisition, contract law, business disputes, construction and design, environmental and natural resources issues, water rights, and general litigation. We have a street fighter mentality that is unsurpassed in our areas of expertise, and we work with our clients in every aspect of litigation. Just as important, we work to prevent litigation with our clients by assisting them in their every day legal-business needs.
Land and property acquisition is of critical importance to any winery, and Campbell, Lauter and Murphy have experience second to none in working with multiple clients in complex deals from large to small. We know what problems to avoid and how to advise clients to help make for a smooth transaction between buyer and seller.
Construction law and related fields are a specialty of our firm, which we have dealt with for over 25 years. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in the construction industry and know what the legal issues are to avoid litigation, and to best represent the parties should trouble arise. Having experience from both sides of the table, we know what it takes to get a project off the ground, what needs to be accomplished with the proper authorities, how to structure financing and investment in a project, and what to do to avoid construction litigation and potential problems in the future.
Water law issues are an important part of any land owners consideration, and even more so with farm land and wine producers. We have in-house attorneys who handle soil, ground and surface water contamination issues, as well as air quality issues; matters involving CERCLA, CEQA, Clean Air Act, Proposition 65, and federal and state safe drinking water laws.
Our experience in contract issues will assist in the purchase, sale, and distribution of products, as well as assist in your understanding of your rights and responsibilities under any agreement; as well as the distribution laws of the states. New laws and recent court decisions require every winery and wine maker to understand how the law is changing, to make sure they meet all the requirements and regulations in this complex industry. We are here to help.
We represent all types of clients from large corporations to the individual. Let us help you. Let us fight for you. We look forward to your call.
