Cameron “Cam” M. Leonard, most recently Senior Assistant Attorney General with the Alaska Department of Law, has joined Perkins Coie’s Anchorage office as Senior Counsel in the Environment, Energy & Resources practice.

“Cam is a nationally recognized environmental and natural resources lawyer, having served as lead lawyer for the State of Alaska in many of the state’s most high profile issues over the past 20+ years,” said Eric Fjelstad, Office Managing Partner of Perkins Coie’s Anchorage office. “As the top mining attorney for the state, he has led Alaska’s work on some of the largest and most controversial mining projects. I’ve known Cam for more than 15 years and have always been impressed with his legal acumen and practical approach to lawyering. We are thrilled that Cam is joining our growing resources group.”

Tom Lindley, Chair of Perkins Coie’s Environment, Energy & Resources practice group, added, “There are few attorneys with Cam’s experience and profile. He is an outstanding addition to both our busy practice in Alaska and to our national group. His experience will not only benefit our Alaska-based clients, but many of those in the Lower 48.”
