Zachary Norris

Senior Attorney

Zachary Norris is a Senior Attorney at the Niskanen Center. Zack is committed to the idea that short-term investments in energy infrastructure should be consistent with our long-term emission reduction goals, and his work reflects that objective. Zack litigates cases challenging unnecessary fossil fuel infrastructure, which drives up consumer energy costs, exacerbates global climate change, and negatively impacts local communities. He also promotes the development of infrastructure necessary to support the transition to low-carbon energy sources.

Prior to joining Niskanen, Zack spent over a decade in private practice, first for a national environmental boutique law firm and then for a major AmLaw 100 law firm. Zack’s work for Niskanen draws upon his experience spanning litigation, regulatory and transactional matters. He is licensed to practice in California and has been recognized as “One to Watch” by Chambers USA and as a Super Lawyer.

Zack holds a J.D. from Lewis and Clark Law School and a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry from Texas Christian University. Prior to law school, he taught high school biology in Baltimore, Maryland, where he was awarded the Baltimore Freedom Academy’s Teacher of the Year Award, and he co-founded Youth Organizing Urban Revitalization Systems (YOURS), a 501(c)(3) organization devoted to providing Baltimore’s youth an opportunity to start their own businesses. In his free time, Zachary coaches high school basketball at De Pere High School, Wisconsin’s 2022 Division I State Champion.
