Today, energy and natural resource projects face complicated, uncertain and challenging reviews by both government and communities. Our Energy, Environment and Resource Strategies (EERS) Group brings together bipartisan senior policy advisors and attorneys who can drive these highly complex matters within all three branches of government to achieve successful outcomes for our clients.
The EERS Group focuses on complex matters that require a multi-disciplined approach to legal, lobbying and strategic services. Collaboratively, the group brings a unique combination of skill and previous federal experience to deliver policy outcomes, project approvals or legal decisions on matters related to energy, the environment and natural resources.
The group provides critical expertise to companies, state agencies, associations, nonprofits and other organizations in the energy, natural resources and environmental space. Areas of focus include oil and natural gas, infrastructure development, project development, public lands and permitting, environmental policy, the Endangered Species Act, energy policy, water policy, mining and Indian law.
With collective insights gathered from decades of experience working as decision makers across various federal agencies, we know how to best position clients before Congress, federal administrative agencies and the courts. Members of the EERS Group have held key positions in which they developed, implemented and defended major policies, including serving as chief legal officers at the Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), decision makers within the Interior and the EPA and Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and senior congressional staff and legislative strategists.
