Mr. Hill has almost 30 years of experience as an attorney, insurance broker, and corporate officer. His practice is focused on: (1) brownfield cleanup and redevelopment; (2) environmental due diligence and cost quantification and management in the contexts of mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs, bankruptcies and litigation; and (3) "dovetailing" companies' commercial and captive insurance policies to ensure that coverage is efficient and comprehensive.

Mr. Hill previously served as Chair of Marsh's Environmental Practice (then the world's largest environmental insurance brokerage); as a private attorney at Covington & Burling and Hill & Kehne; and as General Counsel and Chief Operating Officer of the $773M Environmental Trust created by the Bankruptcy Court, U.S. Government and 14 States to remediate and redevelop the 89 properties left behind in GM’s 2009 bankruptcy, the largest Trust of its kind, the largest industrial bankruptcy, and the largest brownfield undertaking in U.S. history.

Mr. Hill is a graduate of Williams College and Yale Law School, a member of the Bar in New York, Vermont and Washington, D.C., and a licensed surplus lines insurance broker. His offices are in Washington, D.C. and Vermont, the home of more captive insurance companies than any other state.
