Rob Kirsch retired in 2018 as a partner from Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, where he chaired the Environmental Law group. His practice focused on litigation and enforcement defense, and much of his work involved publicly controversial matters at the intersections of law, science and policy. Between 2004 and 2015, Rob was a leader of a WilmerHale pro bono team that vindicated the constitutional habeas corpus rights of non-citizens interned at the United States Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Rob serves as Vice Chair of the Board of the Environmental Law Institute and is a Trustee for The Nature Conservancy in New Hampshire.
