Christine Roy, a partner in Rutter & Roy LLP, has been asked to serve on the International Right of Way Association’s international ethics committee.
Roy, who joined the Freehold-based firm in 1999, focuses primarily on environmental law and eminent domain, according to a news release. As a member of the association’s ethics committee, she will review alleged violations of the IRWA’s rules of professional conduct and/or standards of practice for right of way professionals.
The committee maintains a roster of ethics officers who are trained in the procedures for handling ethics investigations, the news release. Ethics officers volunteer their services on an as-needed basis.
Roy, a past president of the New Jersey chapter and active member since 2003, also has extensive experience in land use law, railroad law, transportation law, pipeline law and appellate practice. Rutter & Roy has developed a niche in cases involving New Jersey’s highly complex environmental regulations and their impact on interstate natural gas pipeline projects.
