Steve Quarles spoke at The Seminar Group’s 27th Annual Endangered Species Act Conference in Seattle, WA, from January 23-24, 2020. Steve participated in the “Legislative/Regulatory Update” panel on January 23rd, discussing legislative developments, rulemaking activities and policy updates.
The Seminar Group’s Annual Endangered Species Act conference was a two-day seminar in which ESA practitioners, agency officials and scientists provided the latest and most important information needed for ESA compliance. The conference helped attorneys, businesses, conservation organizations and government staff understand the complexities of the law. The program provided updates on federal litigation, legislative and regulatory changes, updates to the Section 7 consultation process and Section 4 listings, as well as ethical and litigation considerations. It also offered practical insights and an opportunity to network with experts and colleagues.
