The chair of Connell Foley’s Environmental Law practice group, Agnes Antonian, has been named to ROI-NJ ’s first-ever list of “the people whose work most impacts the environment in the state” of New Jersey.
“Her life before law school (chemical engineering degree from Notre Dame, six years at a top energy company) paved the way to her becoming one of the top environmental attorneys in the state,” the publication writes. “She handles a broad range of complex environmental litigation and land use matters in state and federal court—with litigation experience that spans the full spectrum of environmental law, including Superfund, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Clean Water Act and the New Jersey Spill Act.”
The “top energy company” that ROI-NJ is referring to is Keyspan Energy Corp., where Agnes managed redevelopment and other aspects of the company’s environmentally impaired properties, and oversaw the company’s environmental compliance with multiple regulatory agencies.
Agnes joined Connell Foley in September 2000. Prior to joining the firm, she completed a judicial clerkship for the Honorable Katharine S. Hayden in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. She was appointed to the Supreme Court of New Jersey District Ethics Committee for Essex County from 2011 to 2015.
