Kaitlin S. Harr specializes in water law, natural resources, and municipal law in both transactional and litigation capacities.
Kaitlin has represented public agency and private clients in water, natural resources, municipal, corporate governance, insurance, and employment matters. I have developed a knack for untangling intricate legal problems and developing well-researched, practical solutions to address client needs. For example, my expertise in Proposition 218 includes designing exhaustion of remedies ordinances to protect public agencies from surprise litigation, guiding them through the rate adoption process from retaining rate consultants to hosting a well-run protest hearing with a constant eye towards building strong administrative record, and defending adopted water service rates in litigation.
Before law school she worked as an agribusiness insurance underwriter resolving complex insurance coverage issues and gaining exposure to complex sub-issues within California’s agriculture industry.
Kaitlin’s passion for water law and policy stems from her upbringing in rural Northern California and involvement in youth agricultural organizations like 4-H and FFA where she was exposed to issues impacting California’s vast agriculture industry.
