The American Bar Association’s Section of Environment, Energy and Resources Law (SEER) has elected Seth Davis ’72 as its publications officer. A partner in Elias Group LLP and adjunct professor in Pace Law School’s environmental program, Davis will oversee the quarterly journal National Resources & Environment and the annual Year in Review, as well as the section’s books and newsletters.
The ABA Section of Environment, Energy and Resources represents nearly 11,000 lawyers, serving as a forum for strategies and information and keeping its members up-to-date on development trends, court decisions, legislative initiatives and statutes.
“I have been an active member of SEER for over 30 years, and this association has been the most important factor in my development as an environmental lawyer,” notes Davis. “From crash courses in new regulations to an ongoing construction of a nationwide network of colleagues, SEER has always been present and reliable. I am delighted to be able as an officer to help the Section continue to provide these services.”
Davis, who serves as chair of the Zoning Board of Appeals in his hometown of Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y.—as well as New York Eastern regional director for the creative problem-solving competition Destination Imagination—has specialized in environmental law since 1980. As part of Elias Group, Davis focuses on Superfund and hazardous waste site remediation, and he counsels clients on the environmental aspects of corporate transactions such as mergers, acquisitions, and sales, and on the development of environmental programs. A College of Letters major, he earned his J.D. from Harvard. He is married to Elisa Serling Davis ’76 and the couple has two sons.
