Holland & Hart announced the addition of Sean Parnell, former governor of Alaska, to the firm’s Anchorage office.

In a release, the firm said Parnell’s public service career includes serving from 2009-2014 as Alaska’s governor. Parnell also served as lieutenant governor and is a former Alaska state senator and representative. As an attorney, Parnell’s decades-long experience in commercial transactions, natural resources, and litigation was developed in private practice, as in-house counsel, as director of state government relations for a major oil company, and in government service.

At Holland & Hart, Parnell will work with business clients, as well as new clients in energy and infrastructure development, the firm said.

“The extensive connections and relationships Sean has fostered at state, federal, and Western regional levels make Sean a valuable resource for clients undertaking infrastructure or natural resource exploration and development. Sean provides the firm’s energy and natural resources clients with a unique combination of experience as a former government leader, legislator, administrator, and legal advisor,” said Kyle Parker, administrative partner of the firm’s Anchorage office.

“Sean is a strong addition to our highly-regarded energy industry team,” said Liz Sharrer, chair of Holland & Hart. “His many years of leadership in public service and his commitment to economic development align with our firm’s goal to continue expanding service and support of Alaska-based clients.”
