GREGORY J. WALCH

From sales transactions to permitting to compliance to litigation, I’m available to consult with other lawyers in the firm regarding all manner of natural resource and environmental issues that their clients may have – and they can take advantage of my substantial experience in those areas and my understanding of the related administrative and judicial processes in Nevada. I know most of the players in water law in the southwestern states and many in Mexico as well.”
