Daniel J. Condren
Associate

Dan Condren assists public and private entities in securing and protecting reliable access to water resources. His legal practice with Somach client teams includes work in Colorado’s water courts, transactional and diligence matters outside of court, and regional work at the federal level involving interstate waters and administrative agency law.

From the start, Dan has been driven by an enthrallment with western water law and all its numerous disciplines. Throughout law school, his fascination with the subject led him to jobs at Colorado’s Division Five water court, a western Colorado water law firm, Stanford University’s Water in the West Program, and finally to this firm’s Colorado office, where he clerked for a year before joining as an associate at graduation. Prior to law school, Dan gained vital experience as a litigation paralegal for an international firm with offices in Denver, where his work focused heavily on environmental and administrative law matters.

Outside work, Dan enjoys mountain sports and the parallel activity of entertaining his dog. He also spends time reading and listening to music, along with the stranger hobby of exploring the world through free online mapping and data visualization tools.
