Keith Bradley represents companies before US federal and state agencies across a spectrum of regulatory regimes. As a senior advisor to the General Counsel of the US Department of Energy (DOE) until recently, Keith organized the defense of high-stakes litigation; advised on prominent departmental regulatory reforms, such as those in energy conservation and nuclear export controls; and was the department’s lead lawyer on implementation of the Iran nuclear deal.

    Before joining DOE, he was counsel in the Legal Division of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, where he helped draft significant regulations, counseled senior agency executives on administrative and constitutional law, and worked with enforcement teams on some of the bureau’s most significant matters. Since leaving DOE, he has served as senior counsel for a corporation in Denver, where he built and ran the compliance management system and helped introduce regulators to the company’s novel business model.

    Before his government service, Keith engaged in administrative and regulatory litigation, appellate litigation and complex commercial litigation at a major US-based law firm.

    Keith is also a physicist who developed nanoelectronic sensor systems at a technology startup. He has 13 issued patents to his name.
