Washington, D.C. (June 3, 2009) – A recent analysis of Senate disclosure records by The Center for Public Integrity has recognized The Alpine Group as a leading climate change lobbying firm. According to the list, only 10 firms dominate climate change lobbying, and The Alpine Group, which is based in Washington, D.C., tops the list.
Earlier this year, Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP and The Alpine Group announced their joint initiative, known as The Sutherland and Alpine Group Energy (SAGE) Alliance, to serve their respective clients with energy policy and energy tax matters. Separately, each firm is a leader in its field, providing exceptional legal and legislative services, respectively, to a broad spectrum of oil, gas, power and renewable energy companies and energy consumers. Working together for the benefit of our respective clients, Sutherland and The Alpine Group offer advice, develop strategies, set goals and find solutions to the energy policy and tax issues facing both U.S. and international energy market participants.
"We are proud to be associated with our esteemed colleagues at The Alpine Group," said Dena E. Wiggins, a partner in Sutherland’s Energy and Environmental Practice Group. "They bring energy and creative problem-solving to even the most complex legislative challenges."
