Practice Areas

Noyes Law Corporation focuses on the low carbon fuel and energy industries including conventional and advanced biofuels; waste derived energy and fuel; clean and renewable hydrogen production; and biogas projects involving anaerobic digestion, thermo chemical gasification, and other advanced technologies.

Graham’s practice includes legislative advocacy, rule makings, regulatory analysis and compliance, enforcement defense, and project development work. In addition to his work for new and alternative fuel companies, Graham also represents conventional fuel distributors and marketers, investors, and other companies seeking to understand, profit from, and comply with the complex framework of fuel and carbon laws.


Regulatory Expertise

The laws and regulations pertaining to transportation fuels and climate change are detailed, complex, and rapidly changing. The State of California in particular has undertaken an aggressive program to reduce GHG emissions 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. Most lawyers and law firms have little background and spend limited time on fuel and carbon law. By contrast, NLC is dedicated to fuel and carbon law and Graham typically declines to represent clients on unrelated issues. Attorney Noyes is fully willing to take on narrowly defined projects, and to work cooperatively with in house counsel, consultants, and other law firms on projects involving the full range of legal and business issues.
