Maria C. Kao at Briscoe, Ivester & Bazel, LLP serves as corporate counsel, enforcement litigator and board member defense counsel. All are necessary and should be an accessible resource to board members and their association’s managing agents. When an association needs to understand its governing documents, aggressively pursue violations, or even defend against baseless claims, Ms. Kao would be the one to call. Not many other corporate counsel attorneys handle his/her/their own litigation and as such, boards get the benefit of receiving advice from someone with trial tested experience.
Large- and small-scale projects seek out this firm for its attentive, responsive and expert advice. Outside of the day-to-day legal support to associations, this firm also has specializing attorneys to help associations with their land use and title issues. This firm has unparalleled knowledge of the law concerning governmental regulations (e.g., Coastal Act, California Environmental Quality Act, Clean Water Act, Subdivision Map Act) and title (local, state, federal). These areas often collide with the operations of associations and associations can benefit from lawyers who have litigated such issues before the Supreme Court of California and even the Supreme Court of the United States.
