As co-chair of the firm’s environmental practice group, Andy Levine is focused on cultivating and expanding the energy economy in the mid-Atlantic region and beyond.
Having started his career litigating multimedia enforcement cases against refineries, pipelines and solid waste companies, he was soon recruited by Waste Management to implement the very types of programs at issue in many of these cases. While at Waste Management, Andy oversaw landfill and transfer station expansions, permitting and compliance throughout the Eastern Seaboard, and also developed the strategic landfill gas-to-energy program that formed the basis for his current energy practice in natural gas.
As an experienced deal architect he maximizes his clients’ ROI in constructing and operating energy and environmental infrastructure projects, obtains the best possible financing and tax treatment, and evaluates the most advantageous deal and organizational structure. He also finds the most strategic means for environmental compliance and permitting, with a keen focus on the clients’ business development plans, and most of all, the bottom line.
