SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Best Best & Krieger is pleased to announce that Stefanie Morris is returning to the firm as a partner after serving four years as the in-house general counsel for the State Water Contractors.
Practicing almost exclusively in the areas of water rights, Stefanie brings great experience and knowledge of California’s most complex water issues. She has handled major adjudications over groundwater basins and, during her time away from BB&K, was heavily involved in the negotiations and drafting of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act.
“We are very excited to have Stefanie return to us after a time in which she gained a unique perspective and deep knowledge of some of the state’s most critical water challenges,” said Managing Partner Eric Garner. “BB&K has long been regarded a leader in water law in California, and Stefanie’s rejoining the firm expands our team and will bring new insight to our clients.”
At SWC, the entity that represents the 27 water agencies that obtain water from the State Water Project, Stefanie represented the agency in all legal matters and advised on legal and policy issues. She remains general counsel for the State Water Contractors. Stefanie earned her law degree at Loyola Law School.
