A New Perch for One Environmental DeregulatorTweet
October 27, 2006
Bracewell & Giuliani LLP (whose blog can be found here) announced that Jeff Holmstead, former assistant administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for air and radiation, joined the firm as a partner in the Washington D.C. office. Holmstead, who resigned on August 30, 2005, will head the firm's newly formed Environmental Strategies Group to "advise the nation's top companies and business groups as they grapple with increasingly complex environmental and energy development challenges in the coming years." During his time at EPA, Holmstead was criticized by environmentalists as a point man for the administration's efforts to weaken air-quality regulations.
