Specializing in Energy Law
We’ve selected five Lawyers of the Year for portraits and to share trends in their legal specialties and a quotation that has inspired them in their work.
Notable trend: It is becoming much harder to site energy facilities in our state, regardless of whether they will bring cleaner energy, lower prices and much-needed economic development opportunities. While it is important to make sure that whatever energy facilities are cited in our state are done in a way to ensure that they do not have unreasonable adverse effects on our environment, public health and safety, being able to find a way to site them safely and responsibly is critical to the future of our state and our environment.
