Haynes and Boone - A Strong Supporter of the Annual Texas Environmental Superconference


AUSTIN – The Annual Texas Environmental Superconference is celebrating its 20th year, and, as always, is sold out, with over 500 registrants. Since 1998, Haynes and Boone, LLP has played an active role in arranging and putting on the conference.

Jeff Civins has been the chair of the conference since its inception. Bane Phillippi is on the planning committee and serves as liaison to the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Section of the State Bar of Texas, the lead sponsor of the event, succeeding Mary Mendoza, who filled that role for a number of years. And Lei Johnson, an environmental legal assistant, and Marti Lozano, Austin office operations supervisor, play key roles in coordinating the many elements that go into the conference.

The conference is one of a kind. It encourages audience participation and networking, and has skits, quizzes, and prizes. It also has themes -- this year, a political one, “Join the Party,” and, each topic has a corresponding political slogan. For example, Haynes and Boone partner Barry McNeil, co-editor of the Third Edition of Internal Corporate Investigations, will speak at a session entitled, “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet,” discussing internal corporate investigations as they pertain to environmental regulation, with Roberta Lewis of Shell Oil Company.

The two-day Texas Environmental Superconference will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin on August 7-8, 2008. Sponsors include, in addition to the State Bar of Texas Environmental and Natural Resources Law Section, the Air & Waste Management Association – Southwest Section, Water Environment Association of Texas, the Texas Association of Environmental Professionals, The Auditing Roundtable, and the American Bar Association of Environment, Energy & Resources.
