Amanda Dumville assists clients with environmental and energy law litigation and transactional needs.

Amanda represents companies in environmental and environmental insurance litigation,  including cost recovery actions involving Superfund sites, landfills, groundwater and soil contamination, and underground storage tanks. She counsels clients on the complexities of the New Jersey Spill Act and on federal and state natural resource damages (NRD) law.

When clients are negotiating business, brownfields and renewable energy transactions, Amanda advises them on how to comply with federal and state environmental laws and regulations, including the New Jersey Industrial Site Recovery Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), and the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA).

Amanda has helped her energy clients examine such issues as the ability of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to review merger proposals under its Federal Power Act authority, the role that the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act plays in investigating any merger or acquisition, and the FERC’s authority to initiate enforcement actions under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act. She has also analyzed federal and state law issues affecting building and operating a natural gas compressor. Keeping abreast of industry trends and hot topics, Amanda has attended several conferences covering renewable energy, the transmission grid and the FERC’s jurisdiction.

She is a cum laude graduate of Vermont Law School, which has a nationally renowned environmental and energy law program. While in law school, she was an extern in the highly selective externship program with the U.S. Department of Justice, Environment and Natural Resources Division, Environmental Enforcement Section. She was also a law clerk for the U.S. Department of the Interior, Office of the Solicitor, supporting the Bureau of Land Management and the Bureau of Reclamation, and for the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, Environmental Enforcement Division.

Committed to pro bono efforts and community service, she is helping a Jamaican woman seek asylum in the United States.
