We are thrilled to welcome Matthew Eisenson to the Sabin Center, where his work will focus on leading and expanding the Renewable Energy Legal Defense Initiative (RELDI), which uses legal research and engagement to support siting utility- and community-scale renewable energy facilities and associated transmission and storage equipment.

Before joining the Sabin Center, Matthew served for four years as an Assistant Attorney General in the Environmental Protection Bureau of the New York State Attorney General’s Office. He also previously worked as a litigation associate at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP and as a law clerk for Senior U.S. District Judge Berle M. Schiller of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Before law school, he served as a special assistant to the President and Executive Director of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Matthew received a J.D. from Yale Law School in 2015 and a B.A. in History, magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, with distinction in the major, from Yale College in 2009.

We look forward to Matthew’s contributions to our growing body of work.
