Paul Murphy, a managing director in Gowling WLG’s Energy Group, has been appointed to the U.S. Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee (CINTAC) for the fourth time.
Operating under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Commerce, CINTAC is tasked with advising the U.S. Secretary of Commerce on a range of trade issues affecting U.S. nuclear exports. The industry panel is composed of nuclear vendors, contractors, scientists, academics, lawyers, consultants and industry representatives.
“It’s a tremendous honour to be appointed to CINTAC,” said Murphy. “The committee offers a valuable forum for the exchange of ideas among key nuclear industry participants, as we collectively look for ways to foster the development of nuclear power generation for the promotion of clean energy, while maintaining the highest standards and practices.”
Murphy’s practice focuses on multiple aspects of nuclear energy law, including project development and financing, international regulatory and treaty frameworks, and nuclear liability issues. His unique industry expertise is frequently sought by several international agencies (including the International Atomic Energy Agency, Nuclear Energy Agency, and International Framework for Nuclear Energy Cooperation), as well as by the U.S. government.
