Peggy Otum Named an NLJ Energy & Environmental Trailblazer


Partner Peggy Otum, co-chair of the firm’s Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Practice, has been named among The National Law Journal’s 2021 Energy & Environmental Trailblazers

The NLJ sites Otum’s work in “two of the most prominent environmental cases in the past decade,” representing British Petroleum (BP) in negotiating a complex settlement involving the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and in assisting in BP’s response to the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The recognition also notes Otum’s work in the emerging environmental justice space, helping clients navigate complex legal issues at the intersection of environmental protection and racial equity.
