Member, Jackson Kelly
Robert G. McLusky is a Member in Jackson Kelly's Environmental practice
group, focusing on natural resources and environmental litigation. He practices
out of the Firm’s office in Charleston, West Virginia.
Bob has been practicing environmental law at Jackson Kelly for more than three decades, so there isn’t much he hasn’t
seen. He has seen the genesis and evolution of some of the most complicated environmental regulations, giving him the
type of experience that can only be learned through practice. Bob’s practice focuses on energy development and
infrastructure permitting and environmental litigation in West Virginia and surrounding states. He has represented
manufacturing and energy ventures in a broad range of environmental issues, including defending Clean Water Act (CWA)
enforcement actions in federal court for Fortune 500 companies.
Bob’s love for his work and concern for his clients and cases extends to every minute of the day. In fact, he once was so
eager to come to work, he accidentally showed up on a holiday and wondered where everyone was. This dedication has
earned him numerous recognitions, including as the “Top Environmental Lawyer” in West Virginia in the 2011 edition of
Chambers USA.
He has defended Clean Water Act “fill” permits from challenges under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and
the CWA, advised “linear” energy projects on NEPA and Endangered Species Act (ESA) compliance, and defended
NPDES, waste, mining, quarry, and air permits. His work has also included CERCLA cleanup actions, internal
investigations of environmental compliance, environmental permitting strategies, and “Brownfields” projects to rehabilitate
contaminated properties.
He has been listed in Woodward/White’s The Best Lawyers in America® since 1993, Chambers and Partners in the
Natural Resources and Environmental Law practice area, and West Virginia Super Lawyers. Bob is a frequent speaker
and writer and is a past president of the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation.
At home on the West Virginia waters, Bob enjoys whitewater canoeing and paddle-boarding in his spare time.
