Harvard Law ‘14. Experienced Litigator. Clean Energy Expert.
Civil Litigation. I regularly represent national non-profits, community groups, and local governments in federal appellate litigation. In recent months, I have co-authored a petition for certiorari of the U.S. Supreme Court and litigated before the D.C. Circuit and the Fifth Circuit. I also have experience litigating in state and federal trial courts in New Mexico.
Regulatory & Legislative Matters. I routinely represent clients before state, local, and federal agencies. Last year, I represented the Brazilian sugarcane ethanol industry in a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rulemaking, and worked closely with a solar company to pass one of the first Property Assessed Clean Energy ordinances in New Mexico.
Tax & Business Law. I work with New Mexico businesses to draft contracts, raise capital, and identify tax savings. For example, I recently helped a start-up prepare an exempt securities offering, drafting its private placement memorandum and securing a “no action” assurance from state regulators.
