Walker Stanovsky practices energy and climate change law at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP. He chose this practice to build on his background in biology and climate science and to live out his inherited love of Washington state’s wild places. His clients include publicly-owned and investor-owned utilities, utility customers, independent power producers, and sustainability-focused nonprofits. He helps them navigate the swift currents of climate and energy regulation at the local, state, and federal levels.
Walker works closely with DWT’s energy and litigation attorneys to represent clients in state regulatory proceedings, FERC hydropower licensing and license implementation, and federal court litigation. He also works on land use and environmental law matters, particularly when they involve complex interactions among diverse regulatory frameworks.
