Regulatory Affairs

Regulations need navigation. HBW’s policy team has more than a century’s worth of combined government and private sector experience successfully maneuvering through the regulatory sphere. We distill complex issues into powerful strategies with simple decision points and actions that lead our clients and stakeholders to their goals.

Our federal regulatory team has been deeply involved in shaping the energy, infrastructure, conservation and natural resources policy across natural resource agencies for the last 25 years, particularly at the Department of the Interior, the White House and the Environmental Protection Agency. Multiple members of our team have been involved in crafting energy, environmental and conservation legislation in Congress and engaged in the rule-making process with Executive Branch agencies.

Working with our Federal Affairs, State Affairs and Communications colleagues, we develop regulatory strategies to push your projects forward, protect your business from regulatory missteps or overreach, and look around corners for you to anticipate potential risks. We also ensure you’re working with the agencies that matter, from the local to federal level, with a harmonized plan of attack that maximizes your chances of success in the shortest timeframe possible.

The HBW team’s experience working with multiple agencies to find the best path forward for large capital projects is unmatched in our industry.
