Join us for a webinar featuring Scott Segal, head of the Policy Resolution Group of Bracewell & Giuliani LLP. For over 20 years Scott has been a leading lawyer and advocate in Washington, D.C. for energy investors, sponsors, developers, and power producers on sensitive issues such as energy legislation and regulation, the Clean Air Act, and environmental issues. Scott will be joined by Jeff Holmstead, who heads Bracewell's Environmental Strategies Group and was the longest-serving head of the EPA's Office of Air and Radiation, and by the head of our Financial Restructuring Group, Evan Flaschen.
