Hinckley Allen is proud to announce that Partner Robin L. Main, who serves as co-chair of the firm’s Environmental and Energy Practice Groups, has been elected Fellow of the American College of Environmental Lawyers (ACOEL). Robin was nominated, vetted, and endorsed in recognition of her work and contributions in the field of state and federal environmental law and her ethics in the profession. Of the 28 national lawyers elected as Fellows this year, Robin is the only one based in Rhode Island and now is one of only two Fellows of the ACOEL in Rhode Island.

The ACOEL is a professional association of preeminent lawyers in the United States whose careers focus on the field of environmental law.

Membership is by invitation only, and eligibility is limited to those who have had substantial experience in environmental law for not less than 15 years and whose professional activities have been at least 50% in the area of environmental law for the last 5 years.

I am delighted to welcome each and every one of them to the College.”
