Practice Overview

Overview

For more than 30 years, members of our Government Relations and Public Policy Environment and Energy Team have played central roles in shaping U.S. environmental and energy policy.

We advise clients and represent the interests of companies and organizations on environmental issues, including resource management, pollution, climate change, endangered species, water quality and quantity, and agriculture. We also represent clients on energy issues related to nuclear, fossil and renewable energy programs, power transmission, energy conservation and energy efficiency. We have particular experience in issues relating to nuclear non-proliferation and waste. We count among our clients major corporations, leading conservation organizations, the U.S. government and national laboratories.

In order to best navigate today's policy debate, Baker Donelson's Energy and Environment Team also explores pressing issues in the field through our involvement with the Howard Baker Forum, a bipartisan platform for examining specific, immediate and critical issues affecting the nation's progress at home and abroad. In particular, the Howard Baker Forum has organized major conferences and inquiries examining the future of hydraulic fracturing, U.S.-Japan nuclear energy policy and the potential for fusion energy breakthroughs, among others. The Howard Baker Forum is one of many tools Baker Donelson's Government Relations and Public Policy Team uses to achieve results for our clients.

The Government Relations and Public Policy Group is composed of lawyers and policy advisors, and members of our team have worked both as senior corporate executives and government policymakers. We understand the needs of the business community, and we understand how to make sure those needs are heard and understood on Capitol Hill. We are bipartisan in our approach, working on both sides of the aisle to craft viable solutions, while never compromising our clients' best interests.
