Dylan King Receives Environmental Business Council of New England's Ascending Leader Award
The Environmental Business Council of New England (EBCNE) named Beveridge & Diamond (B&D) Boston associate Dylan King to its annual list of ascending leaders. In 2019, Dylan founded and continues to lead a growing group of emerging environmental lawyers and law students in the Boston area. The group serves as a place for environmental lawyers relatively new to the practice to network and discuss their work. Additionally, both on his own and through the LinkedIn Legal Mentor Network, Dylan serves as a mentor for law students and junior attorneys across the region, helping peers hone legal-adjacent skills like networking, interviewing, and negotiating. His diverse environmental law practice includes emerging contaminant issues such as PFAS, solid waste facility siting and permitting, contaminated site litigation, aftermarket vehicle emissions, and local zoning matters. He is also active in the Boston Bar Association.
"It’s great to see EBCNE recognize Dylan for his dynamic leadership in the Boston environmental community. Dylan is a force for good as an organizer, mentor, scholar, and friend. He’s an incredibly important part of the future of our office and firm, and we are lucky to have him," said Marc Goldstein, B&D Boston Managing Principal.
Each year, EBCNE recognizes young professionals in the energy and environmental sectors demonstrating exceptional leadership and industry involvement early in their careers. Recipients are leaders within their own organizations, often acting as mentors to junior staff, providing thought leadership on critical issues, and leading teams on difficult or large projects. They also represent their organizations through participation in industry associations and committees, supporting the growth of the environmental and energy sectors. Early career success and rapid advancement in the industry are hallmarks of award recipients, who are often involved civically as well.
