Russell Frisby, Jr. Joins Resources for the Future Board of Directors
Partner Russell Frisby, Jr. was recently appointed to the board of directors for Resources for the Future (RFF), a nonprofit research institution in Washington, DC that works to improve environmental, energy and natural resource decisions through economic research and policy engagement.
“I’m looking forward to joining the RFF Board of Directors,” Frisby said. “I have experienced how the legal system can be an important avenue for change, and have seen firsthand how RFF and the research that it produces informs the processes that create that change. The organization does essential work, and I am so pleased to now be a part of it.”
Frisby described the importance of working together in order to better meet the goals of the organization.
“Improving the electricity grid, updating regulations, and meeting clean energy goals will require actions underpinned by the best legal, economic, and technical thinking we can provide,” Frisby said. “We’re at a climate crossroads. Ensuring we protect the environment and advance our well-being will require all sectors—and all of us.”
Frisby counsels companies in the energy, communications and technology industries on regulatory and corporate issues. He champions these entities in administrative proceedings, litigation and advocacy efforts, and provides strategic and corporate advice. He has represented clients before the Executive Branch, Congress, the Federal Communications Commission, the Department of Energy, the Federal Trade Commission state utility commissions, state legislatures, federal courts and has testified before congressional committees.
