The origin of Brewer Lofgren LLP began in 2005 at 9,000 feet above sea level while hiking the Sierra Buttes. Roy Brewer and Martha Lofgren, who also happened to be two of Sacramento’s preeminent public policy and land use attorneys, started to visualize a firm that offered much more than the typical land use counsel.
Armed with a highly complementary set of skills and experience, Roy and Martha started a firm able to scale seemingly insurmountable issues with persistence, strategic thinking and teamwork. As Folsom’s former city manager and city attorney, Martha brought deep understanding of the public perspective. As a land use lawyer with decades of experience and community leadership, Roy possesses exceptional skill at deflecting conflict and gaining consensus.
Today, the firm provides counsel and strategic advice on all aspects of large, complex and controversial projects that involve a combination of land use advocacy, political strategy, economic redevelopment, brownfield properties, public financing, permitting, rezoning and infrastructure development. Our attorneys know what’s happening in a half dozen jurisdictions at any one time and have advantageous relationships in each. Our projects get approved quickly with practical solutions and lower costs—and we’ve never lost a project. In our first decade, we’ve had 44 approvals, including 40 project approvals by unanimous vote, in nine different jurisdictions.
Nobody is better prepared to help clients and public agencies find a way to “yes.”
