Beth Ginsberg has litigated natural resource, wildlife and environmental cases and counseled clients on the complexities of regulatory compliance and permitting issues under all major federal and state environmental statutes. Beth focuses her practice on complex infrastructure projects, traditional and renewable energy resources, and industrial facilities at the cross-roads of an evolving regulatory landscape.
As a former Department of Justice attorney and EPA Senior Policy Advisor, Beth is uniquely prepared to assist clients in enforcement matters brought by EPA and state regulators, in defending citizen suits and in litigating federal environmental and natural resource cases.
Her successful approach is exemplified in engagements involving litigation challenging the construction of the third runway at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the deepening of the Columbia River Navigation Channel, Snake River Maintenance Dredging, the on-going operation of the Federal Columbia River Power System, and the Deschutes River Irrigation Projects.
Before joining Stoel Rives, Beth served as senior advisor to the Assistant Administrator, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (1993–1995); and was with the U.S. Department of Justice, Honors Program, Lands and Natural Resources Division, Environmental Defense Section (1985–1988).
