About Linda
Linda’s extensive experience working with federal and state regulators has established positive relationships which benefit her clients when working to structure business-friendly, economic solutions.
Q&A
  • What types of clients do you represent?

    I represent owners/operators of electric generating facilities in matters related to complex permitting, environmental compliance, commercial transactions, and related legal strategies.

Select Matters

  • Represented a coal-burning facility over the course of a decade in an extremely complex, controversial NPDES permitting process that required the filing of lengthy, highly technical comments on draft permits, responses to related information requests, and multiple expert reports.
  • Handled all legal issues related to one of the first-in-the-nation conversions of a coal-burning unit to biomass, appearing before regulatory agencies and prevailing at the state supreme court.
  • Responsible for the winning legal strategy in a high-stakes, multi-year Clean Air Act NSR permitting case brought by an environmental group in federal district court.
  • Drafted and negotiated multiple contracts on an expedited basis for the construction of a $400M flue gas desulfurization system for two asymmetrical units at a coal plant.
  • Worked with regulatory agencies to structure a multi-million dollar cleanup of a number of former manufactured gas plant sites, and successfully negotiated contributions from other potentially responsible parties at each site based upon in-depth historical research.
  • Negotiated the contract for the construction of a secondary wastewater treatment system as part of a scrubber system (also referred to as a zero liquid discharge system), one of the first in the country, and shepherded the project through agency approvals, responding to multiple information requests.
