Former Partner Rejoins Fulbright from El Paso Corporation

PITTSBURGH - An El Paso Corporation lawyer has rejoined Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P.'s Pennsylvania office, which serves companies working within the Marcellus Shale.

Janet McQuaid returns to Fulbright as an environmental law partner focusing on energy clients. She previously was a partner in the firm's Austin office for seven years before going in-house at El Paso in 2008. McQuaid spent 15 years at Fulbright, where she represented energy, chemical and waste disposal companies in waste, water, toxic substance control, and remediation matters.

Originally from Pennsylvania, McQuaid's background and legal experience will nicely complement the firm's Pennsylvania office. McQuaid spent the first decade of her career working as an engineer for Exxon, where she helped design, permit, build, and operate oil and gas exploration, production and refining facilities; scheduled crude oil and raw material mix and transportation to the company's domestic refineries; and provided technical support for tax and royalty audits and litigation.

After receiving her law degree, McQuaid joined Fulbright, where she guided clients through civil litigation and transactions involving solid and hazardous waste management, underground injection control, contaminated site remediation, new chemical regulation, toxic substance control and reporting, wastewater and storm water management and water rights and water supply regulation.

When the opportunity arose to return to Fulbright, McQuaid said it was a chance she could not let pass her by.

McQuaid is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania, Texas and Colorado. She received her J.D. from The University of Texas School of Law in 1992 and an M.B.A. from Houston Baptist University in 1989. She received her undergraduate degree in chemical engineering in 1978 from the University of Pittsburgh.

Founded in 1919, Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P. is a leading full-service international law firm with nearly 900 lawyers in 17 locations in Austin, Beijing, Dallas, Denver, Dubai, Hong Kong, Houston, London, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Munich, New York, Pittsburgh-Southpointe, Riyadh, San Antonio, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.
