WASHINGTONThe National Law Journal has named Covington’s Gary Guzy as one of its “Energy & Environmental Trailblazers.” The list profiles 50 lawyers who “continue to make their mark in various aspects of legal work in the areas of energy and environmental law” and have “shown a deep passion and perseverance in pursuit of their mission.”

Mr. Guzy has over three decades of experience in environmental law, regulation, and public policy through his leadership in government, business, and academia. At Covington, Mr. Guzy co-leads the firm’s Clean Energy and Climate team and is a member of the Environmental and Public Policy and Government Affairs practices.

Mr. Guzy recently served as Deputy Director and General Counsel of the White House Council on Environmental Quality where he helped develop and guide the Obama Administration’s environmental, public health, and clean energy agenda. He also was General Counsel of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Counselor to the EPA Administrator during the Clinton Administration, and has served as the chief legal officer, sustainability officer, and climate strategist for a variety of business organizations.

In its feature of Mr. Guzy, The National Law Journal highlights his White House experience where he spearheaded negotiations that achieved the historic agreement to double motor vehicle fuel efficiency standards and significantly cut greenhouse gas emissions through 2025, as well as his work to protect important ecosystems including the Everglades.
