Minneapolis-Based Kevin Johnson Joins Husch Blackwell

News Releases

Husch Blackwell is pleased to announce that Kevin Johnson has joined the firm as a partner in its Energy & Natural Resources industry group. Based in Minneapolis, Johnson will practice out of Husch Blackwell’s virtual Link office until the firm opens its Minneapolis office during the second quarter of 2023.

The firm announced its intention to launch a Minneapolis office in January 2023. Johnson becomes the sixth Minneapolis-based lawyer to join Husch Blackwell since May 2022.

For nearly three decades, Johnson has counseled clients on all aspects of environmental, energy, and natural resources law. He has a particular focus on renewable energy projects and businesses—including those involving bioenergy (waste-to-energy) and biofuels (ethanol and biodiesel)—as well as waste management projects and redevelopment of contaminated sites.

His practice is comprehensive in scope, and he is routinely called on by clients to develop solutions to address siting and facilities development; regulatory compliance and response to enforcement actions; federal, state, and local permitting; M&A environmental due diligence; and property contamination issues.

Johnson joins Husch Blackwell from Stoel Rives LLP, where he served as that firm’s office managing partner in Minneapolis from 2010 to 2014.
