Water Rights Negotiations & Valuations
We understand the technical, regulatory, and economic issues that influence the value of water.
Our staff has the expertise to provide both technical and policy guidance in water rights and settlement negotiations. Working directly with negotiating parties, or through legal counsel, we provide the sound technical foundation that is essential for an effective negotiating position, improving both the efficiency and outcome of transactions and negotiations for our clients. Our water rights valuations consider the potential future availability and uses of water, as well as the opportunities and obstacles presented by changing polities and regulations.
