Leave the campsite cleaner than you found it. The old Boy Scout adage has followed Reed from a childhood camping in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area to an adulthood practicing environmental law.
Reed is proud to be a member of BK’s extraordinary legal team serving renewable energy leaders and supporting the global effort to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable development. Reed’s background in private practice, nonprofit leadership, government service, and extracurricular engagement has taken him around the world promoting environmental values, from teaching fourth graders about conservation in Honduras, to attending a United Nations climate conference in Morocco, to building an off-grid eco-lodge in Malaysia, to urban farming at home in Chicago.
Around the community, Reed serves as Legal Observer for the National Lawyers Guild. Reed is also a member of the Auxiliary Board for the Rebuilding Exchange, a Chicago-based nonprofit that repurposes building materials and provides job training for people with barriers to employment. Outside the virtual office, Reed enjoys musicmaking, scuba diving, nature photography, yoga, reading political autobiographies, and organizing bicycle brewery tours.
