Holland & Hart Environmental Partners Featured in Law360

Holland & Hart Environmental partners Jim Spaanstra, Doug Benevento, Lynn Kornfeld, and Ann Prouty were featured in a Law360 May 9 article titled “Holland & Hart Hires 4 Enviro Partners From Faegre” following the firm’s announcement that a four-partner environmental team from Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP joined the Denver office.

Kornfeld told Law360, "I think what led me to this stage in my career and moving to Holland & Hart was I saw that Holland & Hart has a really strong commitment to environmental practice and a really deep bench of talented associates with environmental specialties." Kornfeld has practiced environmental law for more than 20 years and primarily focuses on the environmental compliance and transactional space across a broad range of industries including agriculture, retail and manufacturing, as well as chemical regulation issues.

Spaanstra, who spent time with Holland & Hart earlier in his career, told Law360 that “he was initially inspired to move to Denver as a result of Holland & Hart's strong environmental practice.” In his practice, Spaanstra specifically counsels energy and natural resource clients on permitting, compliance and environmental enforcement matters, the firm said, while also focusing on energy transition work.

Benevento and Prouty, round out the team's practice. Benevento focuses on state and federal regulatory matters and development while Prouty works on routine and complex environmental permitting, compliance, and enforcement issues.
