Connell Foley partner and Environmental Law Practice Group Chair Agnes Antonian will speak at a session titled “Green Washing & Environmental Law Impacts on Businesses” at the Women, Influence & Power in Law (“WIPL”) conference in New Orleans on October 17.
The session will provide GCs and other c-level executives with an overview of the impacts of environmental law on their companies’ overall business strategies. It will also address how executives can identify and avoid greenwashing pitfalls, and other possible ESG risks.
Agnes’ contribution to the session will bring to bear her work at Connell Foley, where she draws upon her engineering background to address a broad range of complex environmental litigation and land use matters. She understands the diverse issues companies face in developing environmentally sensitive real estate, including wetlands and coastal areas regulated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
Before becoming a lawyer, Agnes worked for six years for Keyspan Energy Corp., where she managed the redevelopment of the company’s environmentally impaired properties and oversaw the company’s environmental compliance with multiple regulatory agencies.
Agnes’s co-panelists at the WIPL conference include Elizabeth Small, CDP North America’s General Counsel, and the Legal Director of Uber Technologies’ Online Food Delivery division, Jessica Sampson.
