Koley Jessen is pleased to share that Mike Linder has been named a Fellow by The American College of Environmental Lawyers (“ACOEL”).

Linder is one of 25 new Active Fellows and one Honorary Fellow elected to membership in the College this year. Each individual in the ACOEL’s Class of 2022 was selected for their distinguished experience, high standards of practice, and substantial contributions to the field of environmental law. Linder is the sole Fellow elected from Nebraska in 2022 and one of four total Nebraska Fellows.

Chair of the Real Estate and Environmental Practice, Max Burbach, said of Linder’s election, “Mike is one of the most talented environmental lawyers in the state. His experience as the Governor-appointed Director of the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) from 1999 through 2013, and his experience in private practice since then, is an invaluable asset to our clients. Mike provides direction on compliance and permitting matters, strategic consultation on environmental requirements and trends, and advice and assistance with environmental due diligence issues.”

The ACOEL’s President, Michael D. Hockley of Spencer Fane LLP, announced the new members with the following statement: “Our new Fellows are among the very best practitioners of environmental law in the country.
