Managing Partner David Graeler and Water Group Chair Alfred Smith Recognized as "Leaders of Influence: Minority Attorneys"

Los Angeles Business Journal

David Graeler, Nossaman’s managing partner, and Alfred Smith, chair of the Water Group, were recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) in its “Leaders of Influence: Minority Attorneys” supplement. The supplement features a select group of Los Angeles County’s leading minority attorneys who have been “particularly impactful on the legal scene while serving as trusted advisors in the LA region.”

The LABJ highlights David’s role serving as “Nossaman’s managing partner and chair of the firm’s Management Committee” and notes that he “previously served as chair of the Litigation Department and co-led the Real Estate Group.” It adds that he “possesses nearly 25 years of litigation and trial experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants [and] excels at partnering with clients to identify their goals and to develop and execute winning strategies both inside and outside the courtroom.”

The publication praises Alfred for leading the Firm’s Water Group and calls him one of the region’s most prominent attorneys in “water, environmental, transportation and public agency law” and an expert in “all aspects of public agency governance and operations.” It closes by saying that he is a “graduate of the Harvard Law School, that has successfully litigated multiple water right adjudications, and he has secured more than $750 million worth of contamination settlements in favor of his clients” and a “trusted advisor on matters involving water rights, the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, Colorado River and Pueblo rights, recycled water, water resource development, contamination remediation, groundwater adjudications, water transfers, desalination, conjunctive use, climate change and environmental regulatory compliance.”
