Somach Simmons & Dunn is known as one of the country’s premier water law firms. At its formation 30 years ago, the law firm started with a focus on water law issues. While the firm solves environmental issues of almost every kind, it remains a leader in shaping water law in California and throughout the West. Even after more than three 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 attorneys 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.

While some water law disputes are routine, 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 resources group when the biggest, most complicated issues require efficient resolution.

The water resources group at Somach Simmons & Dunn is 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 administrative agencies to the United States Supreme Court.
