David Boyer has joined Nossaman as a partner in the Water Practice Group, the Firm announced today.  Mr. Boyer represents public agencies and private parties on water, environmental and natural resources, public policy, eminent domain and inverse condemnation, insurance coverage, and employment matters.  He is based in Nossaman’s Orange County office.

“David has a unique understanding of the challenges clients face in protecting their water rights—under both California and federal regulations—because of his wide-ranging litigation experience,” said Alfred Smith, chair of Nossaman’s Water Practice Group.  “We are always looking for ways to diversify and enhance the services we provide, and David’s addition to our team does exactly that.”

Mr. Boyer is a seasoned litigator with more than 22 years of extensive trial, arbitration, and mediation experience.  He has litigated to verdict or judgment a wide variety of matters involving water rights adjudications, environmental clean-up and remediation, California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) matters, challenges under the Urban Water Management Planning Act, and Proposition 218 issues.  His recent matters have focused on issues concerning the growing relationship between land use and water supply planning.

“Nossaman’s Water Practice Group is at the forefront of nearly every water rights issue in California, and the ability to leverage the Firm’s capabilities in other areas such as public policy, environment and land use, and eminent domain provides a depth that many firms can’t offer,” Mr. Boyer said.  “Working with this distinguished group and cross-selling services with attorneys across the Firm is a great opportunity that I simply couldn’t pass up.”

Mr. Boyer joins Nossaman from Kidman, Behrens & Tague, LLP, in Costa Mesa, where he managed the firm’s litigation practice group.  He holds a J.D. degree from the University of Alabama School of Law and a bachelor’s degree, cum laude, from Bowling Green State University.  Mr. Boyer is the second partner to join Nossaman in the past month, following on the heels of Kevin Collins in Sacramento, who joined the Firm’s Litigation Department from Greenberg Traurig LLP.
