Dispute Resolution

Water and Power Law Group specializes in settlement of complex cases involving multiple laws, stakeholders, and other trade-offs.

Water and Power Law Group views litigation as a last resort in resources management.  Nearly all resource uses are controlled by regulatory permits, and the permitting agencies have substantial discretion.  We use negotiation and other forms of collaboration to resolve disputes between applicants and other stakeholders and otherwise develop effective and durable solutions.

We specialize in settlements which establish accountability and appropriate collaboration in environmental performance.  We favor a comprehensive scope so that the settlement resolves all related disputes between the stakeholders, not just those within the jurisdiction of a given agency or court.
