Jesse Medlong helps clients avoid, manage, and resolve disputes, with a particular focus on environmental law, regulatory compliance and enforcement, and sustainability.

Jesse’s practice draws on his experience as a litigator and climate negotiator to guide clients through a wide array of disputes and regulatory matters. He has advised large manufacturers of consumer packaging, pesticide devices, household goods and technological components on state, domestic and international regulatory requirements. His litigation and regulatory clients have also included retailers, financial-services providers, real-estate developers and global insurance firms.

Jesse began his tenure at DLA Piper as a Krantz Fellow, which allowed him to spend his first year as an associate working exclusively on pro bono matters. He divided his time that year between providing legal assistance to military veterans and supporting New Perimeter, DLA Piper's international pro bono affiliate. His pro bono work has included matters as diverse as representing veterans seeking VA benefits and representing the Georgian delegation at United Nations climate talks. Jesse's work as a pro bono climate diplomat remains central to his practice. He also supports DLA Piper’s commitment to pro bono as a member of the North American Pro Bono Committee.

Jesse writes on environmental developments, sustainability and ESG, international law, executive power, military law and veteran issues.
