BIO: Gerry Pels, Chair of the Firm-wide Environmental Section – Energy and Industrial, has been one of the leaders of the Texas environmental legal community for over 30 years. His diverse practice focuses on the areas of environmental compliance, counseling, and litigation. During his career, Gerry has consistently led teams working on cutting edge matters of environmental law, including arguing Clean Air Act issues before the 5th Circuit in litigation involving the Texas SIP and resolving the well-known Cooper v. Aviall litigation. Gerry has been consistently recognized in Chambers USA since 2004 as well as The Best Lawyers in America for Environmental Law.
Gerry’s wide range of experience includes environmental dispute negotiation, assessing and counseling air, water, stormwater, and waste permit compliance, agency negotiations, as well as representing clients at contested permit, enforcement, and other hearings. He has assisted clients with nationwide air permitting compliance initiatives, as well as strategic air permitting of oil and gas, chemical, waste management, food processing, and refinery operations across the country. He has also defended E&P clients against state-wide and basin-wide air enforcement actions and has been called upon to lead litigation teams, internal environmental investigations and provide strategic guidance on corporate compliance policies, sustainability initiatives, stakeholder involvement and community relations planning, as well as corporate risk assessment and mitigation. Regarding Gerry, Chambers has quoted an opposing litigation counsel as saying, “You just pray you don’t get him opposite you.”
