Somach Attorneys Recognized in Best Lawyers 2019 Directory

We’re pleased to announce that shareholders Stuart Somach and Sarah Klahn were selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2019 directory.

In addition, Stuart Somach was named the Best Lawyers® 2019 Water Law “Lawyer of the Year” in Sacramento.  Only a single lawyer in each practice area per surveyed region may receive this award.

Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey and attorneys are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion is considered a singular honor.  The firm has been named since 1995 as follows:

Stuart Somach
Best Lawyers, Sacramento (since 1995)
Water Law, Natural Resources Law, Energy Law

Lawyer of the Year, Water Law, Sacramento (2019, 2016, 2011)
Lawyer of the Year, Natural Resources Law, Sacramento (2014)

Sarah Klahn
Best Lawyers, Denver (since 2008)
Water Law

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.  For the 2019 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 7.8 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in almost 60,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition.  Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
