SAN DIEGO, July 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Stoel Rives LLP is pleased to announce that the law firm has moved its San Diego office to 501 West Broadway, Suite 2000, a centralized and convenient location in the Embarcadero. The firm's new office will occupy 7,100 square feet in the LEED® Gold building. Stoel Rives also has expanded its focus on Energy & National Resources, while enhancing its leadership team throughout California.
Brian Nese, the new office managing partner for Stoel Rives' California offices, said, "San Diego is a clean tech hub and a leading market for renewable energy. The city is at a crossroads for our energy future as it evaluates whether to launch the largest community choice aggregator in the state. This would drastically transform the energy landscape in Southern California – an industry to which Stoel Rives is deeply committed." He said, "Our attorneys look forward to serving the needs of the energy and clean tech sectors from our new San Diego office."
With San Diego as a driver for energy policy, technical innovation and venture capital, Stoel Rives' San Diego office partners Nese, Anthony Girolami and Morten Lund, along with Alex Mertens, the new co-chair of the firm's Energy & Natural Resources Industry Group, are committed to California's energy, environmental and natural resources practices, including permitting, compliance, air quality, water quality, land use, regulatory, M&A and finance.
With offices throughout the West, growing its presence in California is a core component of the Stoel Rives strategic plan. In January 2020, Sacramento-based attorney Melissa Jones will become Stoel Rives' next firm managing partner and the first to be based in a California office. A trial attorney, Jones expects a sustained commitment to client value while continuing to improve the firm's delivery of legal services in all industries.
Stoel Rives' new office is located near San Diego's main trolley station and provides easy access to Amtrak, Coaster and Interstate 5, State Route 163 and State Route 94 freeways. The building is just steps away from the waterfront and courts, within walking distance to the Financial District and Petco Park, and minutes from the historic Gaslamp Quarter and Horton Plaza.
