LOS ANGELES — Please join us in congratulating Best Best & Krieger LLP Managing Partner Eric Garner for being selected as one of the Top 100 Lawyers in California by the Daily Journal. The legal publication recognized Garner for being a “key player in some of the state’s big water cases.” He was also lauded for his role in helping to draft policies aimed at conserving the state’s water supplies, including the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act.

“For a water lawyer, I don’t think there’s ever been a more exciting time,” Garner told the newspaper.

Garner has practiced water law for more than 25 years, focusing almost exclusively on groundwater matters. He is a lead attorney in litigation over groundwater pumping in the Antelope Valley – now in its 16th year but with a proposed settlement on the negotiating table. Garner is often called upon to share his experience and knowledge in water rights, whether it be before a state legislative committee or by foreign officials seeking his guidance in drafting their own water laws.
