Brooks Pierce is pleased to announce that Matthew Tynan has joined the firm as an associate in the Greensboro office. Tynan will join Brooks Pierce’s business litigation practice and also advise clients on a diverse range of energy law issues and environmental regulatory matters.
Tynan joins Brooks Pierce from the Washington, D.C., office of Hogan Lovells. He previously served as a law clerk for Chief United States District Judge James C. Dever III in the Eastern District of North Carolina. He has a deep background in federal energy regulation and environmental law, including an internship with the Environmental Defense Fund and advising clients in matters before the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Department of Energy, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, as well as a variety of state regulatory agencies.
“Matt is going to be a great asset for Brooks Pierce and our clients,” said Ed Winslow, the firm’s managing partner. “He has experience with the federal energy agencies of a sort that we rarely see in North Carolina, but that, more and more, our clients want to access. He knows about complex environmental and energy issues. We will put Matt to work right away.”
“Brooks Pierce is widely known for its superior counsel throughout its extensive range of practice areas,” Tynan said. “The energy industry is constantly developing and so are the environmental regulations governing it. I look forward to helping my clients navigate these evolving issues and working alongside other skilled attorneys at Brooks Pierce.”
Tynan received a dual law and environmental management degree from Duke University School of Law and the Nicholas School of the Environment. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in engineering physics from the University of Pittsburgh.
