Steven Croley, deputy White House counsel, has been confirmed by the Senate as general counsel for the Energy Department and will oversee a team responsible for ensuring the agency’s operations are compliant with the law.

“Dr. Croley brings to the department leadership team both extensive experience representing the interests of the United States and wide-ranging interests in energy and environmental issues,” Ernest Moniz, energy secretary, said Monday.

Croley will succeed Anne Harkavy, who previously served as acting general counsel.

Croley joins DOE after a career at the Office of the White House Counsel and the Domestic Policy Council, as well as four years as a special assistant to the U.S. Attorney for Michigan’s Eastern District between 2006 and 2010.

He is a Harry Burns Hutchins Collegiate Professor of Law at the University Michigan Law School and a recipient of the American Bar Association’s Distinguished Scholarship in Administrative Law award in 2004.

Croley holds a J.D. from Yale Law School and a Ph.D. in politics from Princeton University.
