07 May 2015
WASHINGTON, D.C., 7 May 2015 – Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce that Washington, D.C. energy partner Amy Roma was selected as an inaugural 2015 Energy and Environmental "Trailblazer" by The National Law Journal (NLJ).
The NLJ Trailblazers is a special supplement paying tribute to some of the great minds impacting the crucial intersection of energy production and the environment. It highlights legal professionals who have moved the needle in the legal arena in terms of defense, new strategies or types of court cases, technological innovation, strategy, billing or any other significant improvement.
The NLJ highlighted Roma’s work on a number of first-of-its-kind projects including the licensing of the URENCO National Enrichment Facility in New Mexico, the first commercial uranium enrichment facility in the United States. Roma was also recognized for her role in advising Coquí RadioPharmaceuticals in its efforts to build a medical isotope production facility in Florida. The Coquí facility would be the first commercial non-power reactor in the United States.
Roma's practice focuses on nuclear energy matters and the regulation of radioactive materials, particularly matters involving the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), NRC Agreement States, and the Department of Energy. She frequently counsels NRC reactor licensees, radioactive materials licensees, Sealed Source and Device Registrants, and vendors on compliance with NRC and Agreement State requirements. Her practice also includes advising clients on nuclear export control regulations, nuclear liability issues, and nuclear-fuel related matters, including the regulation of fuel cycle facilities and the transportation of spent nuclear fuel and other radioactive materials.
