Anthony Cavender, a Houston-based Environmental & Natural Resources senior counsel was featured in an exclusive Q&A with AmLaw’s Texas Lawyer. Cavender is one of Pillsbury’s longstanding environmental lawyers, having joined the firm in 2003. Over the years, he quietly became one of the leading authorities on environmental decisions throughout the nation. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, for instance, he penned 33 blog posts for Pillsbury’s Gravel2Gavel blog under the heading, “A Court-Side Seat.” A round up of last year’s year-in-review, which features excerpts of Tony’s blog posts can be found here. Cavender shares his views on how the environmental practice has evolved over the decades, what the long-term trends for the practice are, how he became a blogger, how he determines which decisions warrant a review, and what direction he thinks the respective agencies and courts will take under the new administration.
