Land Use and Zoning Law
Thirty-five years navigating complex land use and water issues. Facilitated hundreds of millions in water rights deals. Respected authority on water, land use and environmental law matters.
Few can rival Wayne’s experience handling high-profile land use, water, environmental and condemnation matters. Public entities and private companies throughout the Rocky Mountain region have counted on his experience to handle challenging land use and water issues, including water rights litigation and transactions, defense of land use entitlements, easement litigation, federal and state permitting, oil and gas disputes, and eminent domain proceedings.
Wayne’s experience includes a multi-year negotiation with the EPA and Department of Justice over alleged storm water violations, precedent setting litigation before the Colorado Supreme Court on oil and gas regulation, all aspects of Colorado water law and defense of land-use entitlements on behalf of landowners and developers throughout Colorado.
Wayne’s passion for the Rocky Mountain’s land and water resources extends beyond his legal practice. In his free time, he volunteers as a board member of the Colorado Water Trust, which has restored nearly 12 billion gallons of water to 444 miles of rivers and streams across the state.
