Environmental disputes. M&A provides the technical skills required to allocate responsibility and costs associated with contaminant cleanups and to assess claims for liability and damages.
Water rights negotiations. M&A provides expert advice to negotiating teams on the economic, policy, and technical factors that affect water-resource interests, helping them evaluate various settlement proposals.
Adjudication proceedings. We have a long history of assisting legal teams by characterizing the complex interactions between surface water and groundwater systems using models and analytical methods.
Impact analyses. M&A can predict the potential impacts of past or future actions such as groundwater pumping (which may reduce spring flows, for example) or industrial operations, which may cause the deterioration of water supplies. Our work gives legal teams a defensible foundation for negotiations or litigation.
