BROOKLYN HILDEBRANDT focuses her practice on litigation and project development. She has assisted clients in connection with National Environmental Policy Act and Clean Water Act matters, including enforcement actions, citizen suits, regulatory proceedings, and other challenges. Brooklyn brings a balanced approach to meeting the needs of both high-profile projects and various state and federal laws and regulations. She understands big picture goals and the importance of attention to detail and brings this understanding to her clients at every stage of litigation and project development, including strategy and concept design.
Brooklyn also maintains a diverse regulatory practice, providing quick and comprehensive counsel to a wide array of clients, expanding across industrial sectors. Extending from her love for the coast, she has dedicated part of her practice to advising clients nationwide and helps clients with particularly challenging and unique issues arising from wildlife protection laws, including the Endangered Species Act, Marine Mammal Protection Act, Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and the Coastal Zone Management Act.
Prior to joining Sidley, Brooklyn was an associate at another firm, focusing exclusively on environmental matters. She also clerked with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Environmental Enforcement Section during law school.
Brooklyn is based out of Sidley’s Los Angeles office but continues to work closely with her colleagues in Washington, D.C., where she was previously based.
