Robert M. Andersen is Of Counsel with Clark Hill's Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources (EENR) Practice Group. Rob has 38 years of legal experience advising private and public sector clients, as well as representing them before federal court, on a wide-range of EENR issues. Since re-entering private practice in 2004, Rob has handled cases arising under the Clean Water Act (CWA), Superfund (CERCLA),the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, toxic and hazardous materials statutes, the Clean Air Act, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Endangered Species Act, and the nation's energy laws.
Rob currently assists clients with complex environmental remediations and with the siting and construction of projects requiring permits, licenses, funding, or contracts from such agencies as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energy (DOE), and the Department of Interior (DOI). His recent work includes representation of Nye County, Nevada, in the NRC licensing proceedings for the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository; federal permit and approval reviews for the first offshore wind energy farm on the East Coast; conducting environmental due diligence for the successful merger of Republic Services and Allied Waste; assisting mining, oil and gas companies in obtaining the necessary federal permits and clearances to construct or operate facilities in compliance with energy and environmental laws; and providing litigation support for toxic tort actions and environmental cleanups conducted pursuant to RCRA, CERCLA, and nuclear waste statutes.
Rob previously served for 25 years in senior environmental positions with the federal government, most recently as the Chief Counsel of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, where he directed legal services for more than 400 attorneys worldwide. He advised the Command on civil works projects built on our nation's waterway and military base operations around the world, including nearly nine billion dollars in construction and procurement actions a year. He served as a legal advisor to Corps first responders in New York and at the Pentagon following the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
Rob's experience with the federal government dates to 1980 with EPA, where he pioneered Clean Water Act and toxic substance enforcement at Region V in Chicago, ultimately becoming a Deputy Regional Counsel in 1984. While Deputy General Counsel to the National Science Foundation from 1986 to 1990, he briefly served as the Senior United States Representative in Antarctica and was credited by Presidents Bush and Clinton with preserving United States science and engineering research opportunities on the Continent after environmental groups attempted to halt U.S. operations. Rob developed pollution control measures including an oil spill prevention plan, a cradle-to-grave waste management program, and a natural resources preservation plan for Antarctica that were approved by NSF and the President, funded by Congress, and implemented on the ice. As the first General Counsel of the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board from 1990 to 1998, he investigated environmental and safety problems at DOE's defense nuclear complex. He was instrumental in the nuclear decontamination and decommissioning of DOE's Rocky Flats nuclear plant, and the opening of the Waste Isolation Pilot Project. Rob was twice named a Special Assistant to the United States Attorney General to independently litigate cases involving both environmental and national security issues.
A former member of the Advisory Council to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, Rob has been an adjunct professor at George Washington University since 1994, and regularly teaches graduate level courses including Engineering Law; Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources Policy; Hazardous Waste Management, and Nuclear Waste Management. He is a published author, and his most recent book provides guidance to those wishing to obtain funding, licenses, and permits for offshore research and renewable energy projects. An outdoorsman, he has visited every National Park in the United States and climbed mountains on six continents.
