Energy & Environment

Our bipartisan team advances client interests on energy and environmental policy issues before Congress and the executive branch. We represent a broad cross-section of industry clients, including original equipment manufacturers, major utilities, natural resource developers, and electric vehicle charging station network operators. Our work requires a deep understanding of the federal statutes governing major energy and environment policies, including federal tax, trade and environmental laws. We also maintain a close working relationship with congressional leaders, including the key authorizing committees in the House and the Senate.
