Samuel Walsh General Counsel of Energy Policy for DOE

Samuel Walsh, an attorney who previously served as deputy general counsel for energy policy at the Department of Energy (DOE), received Senate confirmation by voice vote to serve as DOE's general counsel.

Walsh spent more than six years at DOE in legal roles before he joined Washington, D.C.-based law firm Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis as a partner, the department said Tuesday.

He started his career at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit as a law clerk and later worked at Hogan Lovells' energy group as an associate.

Walsh holds a bachelor's degree from Yale College, a master's degree in public administration from the Harvard Kennedy School and a juris doctorate from Harvard Law School.
