Water Quality & Water Rights Practice

“Whiskey is for drinking, and water is for fighting over.” This epigram credited to Mark Twain remains true, at least in the West. Recent droughts and restrictions to protect endangered salmon have created real problems in the use and protection of water supplies.

Our team includes former regulatory lawyers who know how to manage the water system, as well as industry attorneys who understand how water issues affect our clients’ business needs. Our water attorneys use creative strategies to avoid the morass that has come to trap so many others these days.
