Cynthia AM Stroman

Cynthia Stroman

is an environmental partner at King & Spalding, where she divides her time between the Washington and Houston offices. Having worked inhouse as an environmental engineer, she combines her chemical engineering training and practical industry experience to bring a unique perspective to energy and industrial clients faced with challenging environmental issues.

Ms. Stroman represents a range of clients in environmentally sensitive industries on transactional, litigation and regulatory matters. Her recent experience includes representing clients in nationwide regulatory litigation matters concerning greenhouse gases, deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, and air toxics; advising clients on shale gas regulation and litigation; and defending clients faced with groundwater contamination claims. She further concentrates on environmental issues facing developers and other project proponents, particularly for energy, energy-intensive industries, and alternative and renewable energy projects, and assists clients with siting, permitting, due diligence and comparative liability assessments for energy-related projects and market entry strategies. Ms. Stroman advises energy-intensive companies on a range of environmental issues important to their operations, including stationary source permitting and control, federal, regional and state climate change regulation, and environmental reviews under the National Environmental Policy Act. She represents clients in environmental reporting, disclosures and enforcement actions, and she also addresses complex scientific issues while preparing clients and witnesses for discovery and trial in environmental mass tort and class action lawsuits.

Ms. Stroman clerked for the Honorable Emilio M. Garza of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Prior to attending law school, she worked as a chemical and environmental engineer for the Dow Chemical Company, where she had responsibilities in production engineering, project management, air permit development and negotiation, and air modeling. She received her chemical engineering degree from Cornell University.
