Please join Brooke Wahlberg and Steve Quarles as they co-chair CLE International’s 3rd Annual MBTA & BGEPA Conference, happening on December 9-10, 2019, in Denver, CO. 

Named as both an “Energy & Environmental Trailblazer” by the National Law Journal, and a “Legend of Environmental Law” by the D.C. Bar Association, Steve is a veteran attorney who focuses his practice on addressing issues concerning federal wildlife laws (Endangered Species Act (ESA), Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) and Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (BGEPA)), federal lands and resources (including mineral, forestry, land exchange, siting and access law), and water pollution (including matters involving nonpoint source controls, impaired waters and total maximum daily loads, and wetlands regulation).  Selected as an “Environmental Rising Star” by Law360, Brooke counsels some of the nation’s largest electric generation and transmission companies, wind energy companies, pipeline companies, real estate developers, governmental entities, species conservation bankers, investment companies, and mining companies on policy-level and project-specific issues arising under ESA, BGEPA, MBTA, CWA, and NEPA.  

The theme of this year’s conference, "Beyond the ESA: The Next Generation of Wildlife Regulation," will explore the complexities of federal wildlife regulation and the laws to protect migratory birds and eagles under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (BGEPA).
