J. G. A.

United States


Gordon Arbuckle practiced law and policy with the Washington law and lobbying firm, Patton Boggs LLP for over forty years and continued on with its successor firm, Squire Patton Boggs. During his fifty years of practice, he worked at the right hand of the legendary Thomas Hale Boggs, Jr. and, since Mr. Boggs death in 2014, has worked hard to carry forward the unique Boggs approach to law and policy advocacy before the Congress, the regulatory agencies and with State and local governments. His history includes lead roles in the enactment of authorizing legislation and obtaining regulatory approvals for critical groundbreaking infrastructure projects like the Trans Alaska Oil Pipeline, the first U.S. authorized Deep Seabed Mining Project, the first federally authorized Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline, the nation’s only Deepwater Oil Port and an innovative new Compressed Gas Liquid Export Terminal which will ship the full range of U.S. produced hydrocarbons to Countries in the Caribbean and elsewhere. He has also represented defendant companies in major environmental and resource oriented enforcement actions and obtained successful outcomes in a broad range of permitting, regulatory and enforcement proceedings. Arbuckle’s advocacy approach emphasizes common sense, pragmatism, innovation and simplicity. He maintains a close relationship with Squire Patton Boggs and has full access to all of that firm’s resources but also can draw on his 50 year network to bring together teams which can most effectively and economically achieve client objectives. This approach offers carefully tailored, mature “gold standard” representation without the rigidity and costs often associated with “Big Law” firms.
