Gardere Environmental Partner Fran Phillips Elected to Board of EPA Alumni Association


Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP Environmental Partner Fran E. Phillips was recently elected to the Board of the EPA Alumni Association, Inc., a nationwide community of former employees of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Her election was announced April 19 at the association's annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

The EPA Alumni Association was formed in 2008 and has more than 800 members, 75 percent of whom are located outside the District of Columbia or its four surrounding states. Among other things, the association provides a neutral opportunity for former employees to share opinions, views, thoughts and concerns about EPA-related topics and advance the understanding of complex environmental issues.

The association has strong support and participation from the EPA's former administrators, including founding administrator Bill Ruckelshaus and other key EPA officials.

Prior to joining Gardere, Ms. Phillips spent 15 years at the EPA, serving as deputy regional administrator in Dallas, regional counsel in Atlanta and associate general counsel in Washington, D.C. She currently practices in all areas of law and policy relating to environmental compliance and natural resource regulation, including CERCLA and hazardous waste regulation, air permitting and water law.

Ms. Phillips is consistently ranked in Chambers USA, The Best Lawyers in America, and Texas Super Lawyers as a leader in her field and was named the "2012 Dallas Environmental Law Lawyer of the Year" by Best Lawyers.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
