Yvonne Hennessey, Environmental Practice Area chair and co-leader of Barclay Damon’s Oil & Gas, Linear Infrastructure, and Energy Markets Teams, has been selected to City & State New York’s inaugural “Trailblazers in Law” list. The list puts a spotlight on “a select group of leaders who are using their legal training to make the world a better place” and “recognizes civil rights lawyers standing up for racial equality, legal services providers representing incarcerated and indigent New Yorkers, and civic-minded attorneys combating fraud, corruption, and abuse.” About Yvonne, who was recognized in the Energy category, the article states:

[Yvonne] advises an array of energy clients, with a focus on project siting and permitting in line with the State Environmental Quality Review Act and the ongoing implementation of the state’s landmark Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. She was lead environmental counsel for the Onondaga County Industrial Development Agency’s business park expansion to attract semiconductor tenants such as Micron. She has also represented National Grid and Greenidge Generation.
