Review This Lawyer

Patricia Barmeyer specializes in the environmental permitting of controversial projects and the litigation that is often part of the process of bringing those projects to completion. Patricia has handled matters in all environmental media, but her recent work has focused on cases involving water and air permits and coastal development projects. Patricia has been ranked by Chambers USA Leading Lawyers for Business as the top environmental lawyer in Georgia since 2006.

Patricia combines a depth of environmental law expertise with substantial courtroom prowess, representing clients in many types of environmental matters, from rule making, to permitting, to permit appeals, to compliance issues — always seeking to resolve issues without litigation, but ready to litigate if necessary. She has worked on major infrastructure projects including roads, airports, water supply reservoirs, power plants, docks and pipelines.

Patricia is part of the team of K&S attorneys that represents the Atlanta Regional Commission and the metropolitan Atlanta local governments that supply drinking water to the metro area in the protracted tri-state “water wars” litigation. This multifaceted representation has included litigation in multiple courts, including in the Eleventh Circuit, which upheld the use of Lake Lanier for drinking water purposes. In re MDL Tri-State Water Rights Litigation, 644 F.3d 1160 (11th Cir. 2011).

King & Spalding’s environmental practice was recognized by Law 360 as Practice Group of the Year in 2012, 2015 and 2016. Patricia was named Best Lawyers’ Atlanta Environmental Lawyer of the Year in 2010 and again in 2014.
