Ankur Tohan is a partner in the firm’s Seattle office and leads the firm’s global Environment, Land, and Natural Resources practice group. Ankur’s practice focuses on energy infrastructure and natural resource development, compliance counseling, and defense of governmental and citizen enforcement actions. With an emphasis on renewable energy development and carbon management, Ankur advises a variety of industries on issues related to energy transition, expanding opportunities in the blue economy, as well as the impact of shifting carbon policies. In addition, Ankur works with clients on a broad range of complex regulatory, permitting, and enforcement matters, under federal and state laws, related to wildlife and natural resource management, pollution control, and cleanup of hazardous wastes.
My practice focuses on carbon management. The growing ground swell in the business opportunities, as well as regulatory mandates focused on sustainability, carbon emission caps, and carbon capture and sequestration present a wide array of fascinating and complex legal issues.
