Somach Simmons & Dunn is known as one of the country’s premier water law firms. Nearly 25 years ago, at its formation, the law firm had a focus on tackling water law issues. While the firm solves environmental issues of almost every sort, it remains a leader in shaping water law in California and beyond. Even after more than two decades of growth, the firm has not wavered from its core as a law firm focused on water and natural resources issues.

Within the water resources group, we have a number of individual lawyers who enjoy a national reputation in water law. While positive results for our water clients is our measure of success, our professionalism and deep expertise also allows us to enjoy the respect of trade groups, municipalities, regulatory agencies, judges, and opposing counsel in the water law community.

One of the hallmarks of our water practice is the ability to handle the most important and high-profile water law problems. Clients frequently tell us they call upon our water group when the biggest, complicated issues need to be efficiently resolved.

The water resources group at Somach Simmons & Dunn is also viewed as an authoritative source of information on water law developments. We frequently publish information and provide explanation, through our widely-read water law alerts, about the practical impacts of developments in water law. We have negotiated complex water settlements, drafted legislation, and appeared before bodies from City Councils, to the United States Congress, and from administration agencies, to the U.S. Supreme Court.
