Now an experienced water law attorney, he says, “My background gives me a deep understanding of the technical and legal issues related to water matters. This experience enhances my communication with engineers, governmental agencies and opposing counsel to best represent my clients.” Gilbert has a comprehensive set of water law-related skills, including experience with the appropriation, management and sale of water rights and the development of water projects. In addition, Gilbert regularly assists clients with real estate matters, including acquisition, entitlement, and development and disposition of real property. He also assists clients with environmental matters, including purchase, sale and cleanup of environmentally-impaired properties.
