Atlantic Legal Foundation Chairman & President Hayward D. Fisk is pleased to announce appointment of Nancie G. Marzulla to the Foundation’s Advisory Council. Nancie, a founding partner of Marzulla Law, LLC in Washington, D.C., is recognized as one of the leading federal takings lawyers in the country. She represents property owners, developers, water districts, Indian tribes, and business owners and others in litigating money damages claims in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, where she is Co-Chair of the Court of Federal Claims Chief Judge’s Advisory Council.
Nancie has extensive experience in handling matters involving property, water, environmental law, Indian tribal claims, development, and natural resources in trial courts, courts of appeal, and the Supreme Court. She also represents clients in enforcement or permitting disputes with federal regulatory agencies.
Nancie is also President of the Washington Chapter of INBLF, network of highly credentialed law firms across the United States, Canada, and around the globe.
Recently, Nancie teamed with ALF Executive Vice President & General Counsel Larry Ebner on ALF’s Supreme Court amicus brief supporting the pending certiorari petition in Sackett v. EPA, a case which involves the scope of the Clean Water Act’s land-use permitting requirements. ALF’s amicus brief urges the Court to define the Act’s operative phrase, “the waters of the United States,” in a way that does not raise Fifth Amendment regulatory takings issues.
As a part of ALF’s distinguished leadership team — its Board of Directors, Advisory Council, and highly accomplished executive staff and consultants — Nancie joins a dynamic organization dedicated to improving American jurisprudence and the American experience through the effective pursuit of its mission:
- Fostering sound science in judicial and regulatory proceedings,
- Championing parents’ rights to choose the schools and types of educational instruction best suited for the effective education of their children, and
- Advocating strongly for free enterprise, limited and responsible government, property rights, individual liberty, civil justice, and the rule of law under our Constitution.
“We are delighted to add to ALF’s arsenal of advocacy, Nancie Marzulla’s expertise and stature as a leading advocate for protecting property from unconstitutional taking under the Fifth Amendment of our Constitution,” Mr. Fisk said.
