The AGA has exclusively engaged our firm to assist in its search for a lawyer with 5+ yrs. of environmental law, policy, and advocacy experience. Your primary role will be to work with colleagues and members to develop regulatory advocacy initiatives and policy positions on a wide range of environmental, climate, and energy efficiency issues of interest.

Selling Points:

  • In-House environmental positions are rare in the DC area, and the AGA offers:
  • Good visibility and frequent interaction with key leaders in the organization, members of Congress, and senior leaders at member companies.
  • AGA rarely hires, and this position is open due to the retirement of an attorney who has been with the organization for 27 years; lengthy tenure is common at AGA (the GC has been there for 22 years).
  • A hybrid in-office schedule of 3 days a week with a very good work/life balance.
  • The opportunity to ­work on a variety of cutting-edge issues in this collegial, employee-focused corporate culture.
