Alexander English joins LOCE as part of the newest wave of environmental attorneys. Following two years of teaching English in Bulgaria as a Peace Corps volunteer, he moved north to earn a J.D., a Master’s degree in Environmental Law & Policy, and a Certificate in Water Resources Law from Vermont Law School. Alexander’s practice focuses on environmental, natural resources, land use, zoning, and agricultural issues. In particular, he has a deep well of knowledge about matters involving water and wetlands. He has published articles on the climate effects of tropical hydropower, alternative dispute resolution in the context of water quality, and blogs about developments in environmental and public records law.

Alexander clerked for environmental agencies during and after law school, and worked for specialized environmental practices afterwards. He has also served as a consultant/special counsel for various parties seeking to protect the environment and oppose irresponsible development. As a result, he has prosecuted administrative enforcement actions, worked on enforcement defense matters and regulatory challenges, and brought citizen suits under various environmental statutes. His holistic perspective on environmental permitting matters allows him to help clients navigate the sometimes murky waters of the regulatory approval process, mitigate or avoid environmental impacts, or bring challenges against projects on behalf of those adversely affected.

In addition to his environmental practice, Alexander is a Council Member for the Agricultural Law Section of the Maryland State Bar Association, and an active member of MSBA’s Environmental Law and Administrative Law Sections. He works extensively with the Freedom of Information Act and FERC’s Critical Energy Infrastructure Information program, provides permitting and regulatory compliance consulting to Maryland businesses, assists renewable energy facilities in securing Certificates of Public Convenience and Necessity, and litigates contract matters.
