Young Wooldridge LLP welcomes senior attorney Alan Doud back to the firm.

Doud, who originally joined the firm in 2008, will focus his practice on water, public agency, environmental, land use and business law after spending four years at the Tejon Ranch Company.

In 2013, Doud left to serve as senior counsel to the Tejon Ranch Company, whose principal asset is the largest continuous parcel of privately owned land in California. As senior counsel, Doud advised Tejon’s management on all facets of the company’s business, with an emphasis on real property transactions and matters involving natural resources. Additionally, he provided legal counsel on water issues associated with Tejon’s real estate developments and managed various regulatory and litigation matters affecting the disposition of Tejon’s water assets.

He will apply his expertise to represent clients on transactional, regulatory and litigation matters, including the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, groundwater adjudications, real property transactions and eminent domain proceedings. His substantial knowledge of water resource and business law will be an asset to the Firm’s Water Department, which represents over 35 water districts in California.

Doud graduated cum laude from Gustavus Adolphus College with a B.A. in political science. He then obtained his law degree from University of San Diego in 2006 and was admitted to the State Bar of California later that year. Prior to his legal career, Doud worked as a legislative assistant to Rep. George Radanovich (CA-19), advising on federal legislative and appropriations issues while serving as liaison to the House Budget Committee.

Allison Stokes is the director of public relations and marketing for Young Wooldridge LLP.
