The panel, which includes lawyers from the Firm's energy transition team and representatives from Pittsburgh's CNX Resources Corporation and United States Steel Corporation, will explore how practical lessons learned from both legal and business experience can be applied to achieve a corporation's decarbonization and clean energy goals.
