Mark Farley ’88 to Address Deepwater Horizon Catastrophe

Mark Farley, a Houston-based attorney who specializes in environmental issues, will present a public lecture on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20, in Northen Auditorium of Washington and Lee University’s Leyburn Library.

The lecture, “Lessons from Deepwater Horizon and Similar Environmental Catastrophes,” is open to the public at no charge.

Farley is a 1988 graduate of Washington and Lee, where he majored in both English and biology.

A partner with Pillsbury, he heads the Houston office’s environment, land use and natural resources section. In the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon incident, he has advised energy companies with upstream operations on emerging regulatory requirements and systems for overseeing environmental, health and safety performance.

Farley focuses on internal investigations and crisis response and routinely advises companies in connection with major industrial accidents, whistleblowers, process safety incidents and workplace fatalities. He has been the lead attorney in the most significant refinery accidents in the United States in the last 20 years.

In addition to the public lecture, Farley will be speaking to both a philosophy and environmental studies class and will be meeting with students in the university’s Career Services office.
