Andrew E. Dudley

Andrew will be on sabbatical from July 1 through December 31, 2021.

Andrew’s practice concentrates on federal regulatory compliance, hazardous waste management, recycling, emergency release reporting, and remediation.  Always eager to tackle technically complex situations, Andrew helps his clients focus on the most relevant aspects of their legal challenges and identify the best options for resolving them.

Andrew has advised some of the nation’s premier mining companies and trade associations during their interactions with regulatory agencies, and prepared litigation briefs and strategies for clients appearing before the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona.  In the mining and mineral processing industry, he assists clients with permitting, waste management, recycling, health and safety, and water quality matters.  Further, applying his prior experience at the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Energy in Washington, D.C. (as both a federal employee and a private consultant), Andrew helps his clients develop comprehensive strategies for commenting on proposed agency rules, including rulemakings to fix outdated and counter-productive regulations.
