Biography

Annemargaret Connolly practices environmental, health and safety law and is a leader of Weil’s Climate Change Practice Group. Most known as a transactional environmental lawyer, she advises clients on a wide range of environmental concerns, most notably in the context of mergers & acquisitions, real estate transfers, financing transactions and infrastructure projects. Her practice is global and focuses primarily on identifying and managing environmental compliance and liability issues as they arise in the context of corporate and real estate transactions. She works closely with the firm’s European and Asian offices on cross border transactions, assisting in identifying and allocating environmental risks as well as educating foreign clients on potential issues raised by global environmental movements. In doing so, Ms. Connolly undertakes and oversees due diligence assessments, retains and works with consultants, engineers and other environmental professionals to quantify potential liabilities, and drafts and negotiates contract language to effectively allocate the risk of environmental liabilities between the parties. Ms. Connolly’s transactional work requires not only an understanding of the current laws and requirements, but attention to pending and future legislative and regulatory developments that may have significant business implications. Ms. Connolly also advises on disclosure issues in the preparation of financial statement and public securities filings and negotiates transaction specific environmental insurance transactions.

Besides transactional experience, Ms. Connolly counsels clients on a variety of environmental and health and safety topics, including climate change, renewable energy projects and concerns, compliance with hazardous waste and hazardous material, wastewater and air emission requirements, occupational safety issues, asbestos, mold and other building concerns, as well as shareholder, successor and lender liability.

Ms. Connolly has been recognized by Chambers USA 2004 - 2011 as a leading environmental attorney for corporate and real estate transactions. She publishes articles on such diverse topics as climate change, nanotechnology, lender and successor liability, due diligence, and the need for environmental audits in international business transactions and recently published an article" Obama Administration Moves Ahead On Climate Change" (April 2009, The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel).

Ms. Connolly received her B.S., (1984) from Syracuse University, and her J.D., (1988) from George Washington University.

Ms. Connolly is admitted to practice in the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Education
Class of 1988

Since enrolling its first class in 1865, The George Washington University Law School has produced some of the finest minds across the spectrum of legal scholarship. That tradition continues today, as GW Law graduates use the knowledge and skills they gain here to influence the critical legal conversations of our times.

Class of 1984

Syracuse University, commonly referred to as Syracuse, 'Cuse, or SU, is a private research university located in Syracuse, New York. The institution's roots can be traced to the Genesee Wesleyan Seminary (later becoming Genesee College), founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church in Lima, New York, in 1831. Following several years of debate over relocating the college to Syracuse, the university was established in 1870, independent of the college. Since 1920, the university has identified itself as nonsectarian, although it maintains a relationship with The United Methodist Church. The campus is located in the University Hill neighborhood of Syracuse, east and southeast of downtown, on one of the larger hills. Its large campus features an eclectic mix of buildings, ranging from nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival structures to contemporary buildings. SU is organized into 13 schools and colleges, with nationally recognized programs in information studies and library science, architecture, communications, business administration, sport management, public administration, engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences. Syracuse University athletic teams, known as the Orange, participate in 20 intercollegiate sports. SU is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference for all NCAA Division I athletics, except for women's ice hockey, and the rowing team. SU is also a member of the Eastern College Athletic Conference.
