Former American Petroleum Institute general counsel joins one of the nation’s largest law firms focused on energy, natural resources, climate change and the environment

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Stoel Rives LLP is pleased to announce that leading energy attorney Stacy Linden has joined the firm as a partner in its Washington, D.C. office.

An accomplished legal and strategic executive with over 20 years of experience building and leading multi-disciplined, service-oriented legal and compliance teams, Linden most recently served as Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of the American Petroleum Institute (API).

“I am excited to be joining Stoel Rives, which has an impeccable national reputation in both renewable and traditional energy,” said Linden. “Stoel Rives offers a powerful combination of stellar brand and deep bench, and I look forward to joining its exceptionally talented and engaging attorneys as we work together to serve our clients’ interests.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Stacy to the firm,” said Andrew Moratzka, chair of Stoel Rives’ Energy Development Group. “Our energy and natural resources clients will benefit greatly from her expertise in energy and environmental policy, regulatory and corporate compliance, and formal rulemaking.”

“Stoel Rives is committed to building a law firm that attracts bright, motivated, like-minded attorneys who enjoy working together as a team to solve our clients’ challenges,” said Jim Torgerson, Stoel Rives’ Managing Partner. “Adding a professional of Stacy’s caliber to our energy and natural resources team strengthens our well-established capabilities supporting clients nationwide.”

Linden’s experience in the oil and gas industry runs deep and wide. She has handled a variety of issues concerning energy and environmental regulation, including access to offshore and onshore natural resources. She has extensive experience with all aspects of energy policy, the federal rulemaking processes involving environmental and natural resources statutes, overseeing and managing litigation, and navigating corporate compliance issues. Over the course of her career, she has successfully developed and implemented complex litigation and advocacy strategy, managed multi-disciplinary teams, and coordinated large-scale domestic and international projects.

After nearly a decade in private practice, Linden joined API’s office of the general counsel in 2007 and assumed the role of managing counsel in 2009. In September 2014, she was named API’s Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary. A founding member of the Washington, D.C. chapter of the Women’s Energy Network (WEN), Linden has previously served as WEN’s corporate secretary and as an at-large board member. She was also a trustee of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation for nine years. Linden currently serves on the Dean’s Advisory Council of American University’s Washington College of Law.

Linden holds a bachelor’s degree in politics, magna cum laude, from The Catholic University of America and received her law degree, summa cum laude, from American University’s Washington College of Law.
