About Ken Salazar
Ken Salazar is a partner at the global law firm of WilmerHale and founded the firm’s Denver office. He is the former United States Secretary of the Interior, United States Senator and Colorado Attorney General. As a Partner at WilmerHale, he provides legal advice to national and international clients on complex matters concerning regulatory, civil and criminal matters.

As United States Senator, Mr. Salazar led successful bipartisan efforts on many matters, including comprehensive immigration reform, the enactment of the 2005 Energy Policy Act, the 2006 Gulf of Mexico Security Act, the 2007 Farm Bill, and the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act. With the help of his leadership in these bipartisan energy efforts, the most significant energy legal framework in U.S. history was created.

As Secretary of Interior from 2009 to 2013, he helped create the nation’s energy independence framework. As part of this effort, he opened up public lands for renewable energy, permitting more power than the equivalent power generation of more than 30 standard power plants. He also managed the crisis concerning the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and led the reform efforts concerning oil and gas exploration and development on America’s public lands. As a lifelong leader in conservation, he helped create ten new national parks and ten new national wildlife refuges. As part of his commitment to civil rights, he led the nation’s efforts to address long-standing injustices in Indian Country.

As Attorney General, he served as Colorado’ chief legal officer and head of the Peace Officers Standards and Training Board. While Attorney General, he oversaw the investigation of numerous civil and criminal matters, including the Columbine High School shooting and the University of Colorado football team sexual misconduct case. Prior to becoming Attorney General, Ken also served as the state’s natural resources director and chief legal counsel to the Governor of Colorado. During that time, he authored the Great Outdoors Colorado Trust Fund and became its first Chairman.

Ken is a member of the Board of Directors of the Target Corporation and is a member of the Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees.
