Joshua Rosen


I partner with clients to navigate regulatory, environmental, and stakeholder matters for offshore wind and other clean energy projects.

Josh’s energy and climate law practice includes regulatory, environmental permitting and compliance, due diligence, and transactional matters. He received a dual JD/MBA through the University of Maine with a central focus on energy, climate, and business. Josh brings nearly 10 years’ experience in the offshore wind industry and Maine’s energy and environmental sectors to his practice.

Josh maintains a strong network within Maine’s energy policy, environmental nonprofit, economic development, legal, technical services, and municipal government communities.

Prior to joining the firm, Josh consulted with several highly entrepreneurial small business, nonprofit, research and development, and state and municipal government organizations in Maine, including the Maine International Trade Center. 

For nearly 10 years, Josh worked at the University of Maine on a U.S. Department of Energy-funded effort to commercialize floating offshore wind technology in the Gulf of Maine. Through this work, Josh developed specific technical knowledge on offshore wind and the Gulf of Maine–including its complex stakeholder landscape–and national trends in the offshore wind industry. 

This offshore wind experience led to him securing energy and climate internships during law school with the Maine Governor’s Energy Office and the Maine Governor’s Office of Policy Innovation and the Future.

He served as a city councilor in Bangor, Maine, from 2013-2016.
