Environmental attorney Amy Wang is taking on another leadership role in the North Carolina Bar Association's Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources Law Section.
The New Bern-based attorney was nominated to serve as Vice-Chair by the Section Council during its annual meeting, and her appointment was approved by the Chair of the Bar Association. Her one-year term started on July 1.
Amy has held several executive positions within the environmental law section. Last year, she was elected as the Section's Secretary after serving in the role of Treasurer the year before. Prior to that she served as Committee Chair for Coastal Concerns and served on the CLE Committee for the Section's first three-state conference with South Carolina and Georgia in 2018.
She leads the firm's environmental practice group where she advises clients on regulatory compliance, due diligence, remediation of contaminated properties, coastal development, and real estate transactions. In addition, she assists businesses with environmental assessment, permitting, and enforcement issues.
Amy also chairs Ward and Smith's Green Initiative, which promotes environmentally sustainable professional practices.
