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.

“Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”
