Gallagher & Kennedy is pleased to welcome back Todd W. Rallison to our environmental department after over two decades working in-house at Intel Corporation. Todd returns to G&K as Of Counsel bringing extensive knowledge of the local, national, and global technology industry and its environmental health and safety needs, including hazardous waste, water quality, air quality, chemical regulation, litigation, ESG, and mergers and acquisitions.
For 20 years, Todd served as global legal director for Corporate Services at Intel Corporation where he managed legal services for most manufacturing and product issues, including environmental, health and safety, real estate, procurement, construction, utility contracting, site security, public affairs, tax incentives, incident management, environmental M&A, ESG, and product regulation (FCC, CPSC, etc.) and liability. He also supported semiconductor manufacturing and assembly sites throughout the U.S., Ireland, Israel, Costa Rica, Malaysia, China, Vietnam, and the Philippines, and R&D operations in India and Russia, among others.
Most recently, Todd managed the Intel team responsible for manufacturing and sustainability policy within Intel’s worldwide government affairs organization. This included areas as diverse as chemical regulation, climate change, electrical grid and city digitalization and modernization, conflict minerals, ESG and corporate responsibility, and product energy and material efficiency regulation.
Before Intel, Todd worked in the law departments at Pinnacle West (APS) and Motorola where he advised on matters associated with environmental health and safety permitting and regulation, including M&A and environmental litigation.
Todd first joined G&K in 1990 after gaining litigation experience at Gibson Dunn in San Diego and a 1-year judicial clerkship with the Honorable Richard M. Bilby, Chief Judge, for U.S. District Court, Arizona.
Originally from Salt Lake City, Todd earned his undergraduate degree in English and Organizational Communication from the University of Utah, and his law degree from its S.J. Quinney School of Law.
