Purchase and Sale- Change and Transfers

Carpenter, McGuire & DeWulf have assisted many clients with the purchase, sale, change and transfer of water rights.  Whether assisting clients in planning for the future use of their water rights or in assisting clients when conflicts arise between competing water users, we have the experience and knowledge necessary to assist our clients with protecting their water rights, including dealing with the Department of Ecology, Water Conservancy Boards and appeals to the Washington State Pollution Control Hearings Board.  Our water right user clients are farmers, ranchers, municipalities, developers, industrialists and commercial entities.
