Environmental Counsel at McGuireWoods LLP
Richmond, VA, USA
21 Dec → 20 Jan
The Richmond office of McGuireWoods seeks an environmental counsel for the Regulatory & Compliance Department.
As part of the Regulatory and Compliance Department, our environmental practice group offers experience on every aspect of this area – from contaminated site clean-ups and due diligence reviews, to renewable fuel approvals and nanotechnology. We distinguish ourselves by focusing on broader client needs: preventing future problems, capitalizing on environmental assets, searching for more sustainable practices, helping the public understand the benefits of the client’s business activities – and forging innovative sustainability and green finance solutions.
With strong regional, national and international experience, we are thought leaders on emerging issues, like EPA’s proposal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and extend its jurisdiction under the proposed “waters of theU.S.” rulemaking, and state efforts to restrict residual management (coal ash,animal waste and biosolids) for many of our anchor clients.
We have particular skill in transactions involving natural resource development, major manufacturing facilities and energy projects, and we offer significant depth of experience with organizing and managing groups of clients with common regulatory interests for an optimum outcome. In all these areas, we routinely use business and tax concepts to optimize project or transaction value.
Disclaimer: Search firms with a current preferred agreement in place with McGuireWoods LLP may submit resumes directly to the Recruiting Manager. All other unsolicited submissions by search firms will be deemed not accepted.

Qualified candidates will have at least 5 years of practice handling environmental matters, with preference for candidates with experience practicing before federal and state environmental and natural resource regulatory agencies, as well as candidates with experience providing support for environmental due diligence in transactional matters.
Prior experience in regulatory and administrative law is preferred.
Excellent academic credentials, writing, and communication skills are required, along with a commitment to firm’s core values of excellence, integrity, client service, diversity and inclusion, community, and collegiality, and an enthusiasm for working with a team.
