Riparian Rights - Lynnhaven River: Virginia Waterfront Property Law

Lynhaven River / LNRNow, Virginia Beach

Legal Services for Lynnhaven River Waterfront Property Owners in Virginia

The Lynnhaven River is a tidal estuary located in Virginia Beach. It flows into the Chesapeake Bay at Lynnhaven Inlet. The river is known for the world-famous Lynnhaven oyster, considered by many to be the best oysters in the world. In past decades the Lynnhaven oyster population has declined dramatically, primarily due to man-made pollution. However, thanks to restoration efforts such as the “Lynnhaven River Now” project, the water quality is improving and the oyster population is once again on the rise. Our teams’ extensive knowledge of waterfront (riparian) property rights law, maritime and admiralty law, and environmental law has helped clients all across Virginia.
