Our attorneys and advisors have extensive experience advocating before Congress, the executive branch, and other federal, state, and local government officials to address client needs across the broad spectrum of environmental and energy issues. Our effectiveness comes from our understanding of the issues that our clients face, our ability to develop strategies to achieve our clients’ objectives, and our deep understanding of the legislative and regulatory processes. We take a holistic approach in advocating for our clients to meet their objectives, starting with assessing relevant legal and policy issues, developing a strategy, and then implementing that strategy at the federal, state and local levels.
 
 With a team that includes a former counselor to the Secretary of the Department of the Interior, a former New York State Attorney General, a former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) staffer, a Department of Justice attorney that spent 10 years working closely with federal executive agencies, and an environmental attorney and lobbyist that has represented clients before Congress and executive agencies for more than 20 years, we are able to achieve our clients’ objectives through direct congressional and executive branch policy advocacy, legal and regulatory analyses, and participation in rulemakings.
 
We also have extensive experience assisting clients with Executive Agency rulemakings, where we identify and analyze the implication of proposed and final rules, assist our clients in preparing rulemaking comments, and identify and implement political strategies where needed to influence such rulemakings. Our environmental attorneys have advised on and submitted comments on behalf of our clients to EPA, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of Defense, Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Aviation Administration, and Bureau of Land Management, among others.
