Two Meyers, Nave, Riback, Silver & Wilson partners are leaving to start a landuse litigation boutique. In January, Meyers, Nave partners Rick Jarvis and Benjamin Fay will make an “amicable” split with the firm that they joined as associates, the attorneys and a firm official say. Jarvis and Fay say they missed the small-firm environment that existed when they joined Meyers, Nave in the 1990s. Then, the firm had 11 attorneys; now it has about 65 lawyers, they said. “It has been exciting to be part of the growth,” Jarvis said. “Then you look back and think that something is missing.” In a statement, Meyers, Nave name partner Steven Meyers wished the two attorneys well. “Rick and Ben have grown into excellent lawyers,” Meyers said. “We wish them the best and plan to continue working with them on specific matters.” Until recently, Jarvis headed Meyers, Nave’s land use litigation group. Jarvis has been a partner for five years and joined the firm in 1992. He specializes in land use and California Environmental Quality Act issues. Recently, Jarvis successfully defended Healdsburg’s approval of a wastewater plant expansion in court. He also represented the city of San Bruno in a dispute with BART over access around a local BART station. Benjamin Fay joined Meyers, Nave in 1995 and became a partner two years ago. Recently, Fay was on an advisory panel that helped Oakland city officials sort through proposed changes for its strong-mayor initiative. Also, he has advised Alameda County in a federal dispute over whether a private Christian school may build a high school in Castro Valley. Jarvis & Fay’s office will be at 901 Clay St. in Oakland.
