Scott Fulton, Principal; Beveridge and Diamond pc
Scott Fulton served from 2009 to January 2013 as General Counsel of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, where he handled or directed some of the U.S.’s most significant environmental legal matters and represented the U.S. government at international meetings and negotiations.
Mr. Fulton uses the rich experience gained from three decades of high-level government service to help solve complex environmental problems for clients and to enable clients to meet their environmental objectives both domestically and abroad. He works on a variety of matters consistent with the breadth of his background, including regulatory development and litigation, policy advocacy, permitting and enforcement under all major environmental statutes; sustainability counselling; and evolving unconventional approaches to environmental protection (e.g., supply chain management and product life cycle requirements, voluntary programs, environmentally preferential purchasing, and reverse logistics).
He also serves on key, high-level advisory councils to both the United Nations Environment Program and the Organization of American States. Mr. Fulton is the recipient of the Presidential Meritorious Executive Service Award and the Presidential Distinguished Executive Service Award, and has been inducted into the American College of Environmental Lawyers.
