Law360 Covers Arrival of Lewis Csedrik to Washington, D.C. Office
Lewis Csedrik, partner in the firm’s globally ranked Nuclear Energy Practice, interviewed with Law360 about his decision to join Balch & Bingham’s Washington, D.C. office, and how he plans to use more than 20 years of experience in the nuclear industry to serve the firm’s clients.
Lewis has counseled clients on work environment issues, investigations and enforcement matters, whistleblower litigation, and alternative dispute resolution, before the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Department of Energy, and other state and federal regulatory agencies, as well federal courts.
In the article published January 12, 2023, Lewis said he was drawn to Balch after working with a number of the firm’s attorneys, including managing partner Stan Blanton.
"It was pretty clear that Balch had a top-tier energy practice and working with the folks here not only confirmed that for me, but it also told me that they're good people who are excellent to work with," Lewis told Law360. “My clients are already familiar with the firm, so it should be a seamless transition and I'm looking forward to it."
Lewis has experience representing clients throughout the nuclear industry, including electric utilities, nuclear suppliers, and other types of licensees, such as hospitals and industrial users of nuclear materials.
He told Law360 one of his goals at Balch is to expand his practice and apply his knowledge from the nuclear industry to other parts of the energy sector and other highly regulated industries.
"Many of the practices that I've helped develop with my nuclear industry clients over the years are just as relevant and valuable to other sectors of the energy industry, along with other highly regulated industries like transportation and hazardous materials," Lewis told Law360. "In all of these areas, business has to be conducted in a way that ensures the safety and security of workers, the public and the environment."
