For over four decades, Van Ness Feldman professionals have been involved in every major debate on energy policy and environmental policy. Our founders’ vision was to provide a unique approach to legal and public policy practice—one based on substantive knowledge and deep subject matter expertise—not just on “insider” access to regulatory agencies and legislators. Van Ness Feldman has not wavered from this vision, and today our attorneys and policy professionals are engaged in some of the most dynamic and ground-breaking policy matters affecting our nation.
Van Ness Feldman’s bipartisan team includes former members of Congress, individuals who served as legal counsel and policy advisors to the members of Congress and Congressional committees, White House staff, and presidential appointees to federal agencies in both the Democratic and Republican administrations that developed many of our nation’s most important energy, environmental, and natural resources laws.
