 ASF - Atlantic Salmon Federation
Title: Chairman

Name: Mr Christopher H. Buckley Jr

A graduate of Harvard Law School, Mr. Buckley is a retired partner of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, one of the largest law firms in the United States with multiple domestic and overseas offices, where he was a member of the firm's Washington, D.C. office. He founded and chaired the firm's Environment & Natural Resources Practice Group, of which more than 50 attorneys are members and whose clients have included many Fortune 500 companies.

“Chris devotes considerable time to pro bono activities,” commented ASF President Bill Taylor, “many of them helping to protect the pastimes about which he cares deeply.” Mr. Buckley represented ASF in its successful petition to have wild Atlantic salmon listed as an endangered species in the few remaining Maine rivers in which it spawns. He fishes for tarpon, permit and bonefish in Florida, Atlantic salmon in Canada and Europe, and steelhead trout in British Columbia. He has a home in Canada near the Grand Cascapedia River, Quebec, which is famous for its large salmon and the substantial economic benefits the thriving recreational fishery provides for local communities.

Mr. Buckley’s extensive environmental, natural resources and toxic tort litigation experience has led the defense of some of the largest and most significant toxic tort cases ever filed. He has been a frequent lecturer and author with respect to environmental regulatory programs and environmental litigation and was named one of the best environmental lawyers by Chambers USA – America's Leading Lawyers for Business; The Best Lawyers in America; Guide to the World's Leading Environmental LawyersWho’s Who Legal: USA – Environment; Environment Expert Guide; Washingtonian's Best Environmental Lawyers List; and Washington DC Super Lawyers.

In addition to his responsibilities with ASF, he is a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of the Everglades Foundation and the Board of the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust.  He is a member of the Anglers Club of New York and the Ristigouche Salmon Club, Canada.  He has also served as a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the Environmental Law Institute and as President of the Barker Foundation, a non-profit adoption agency in Washington, D.C.

Mr. Buckley picks up the torch from editor and publisher of Maine’s Bangor Daily News, Richard Warren, who had chaired the ASF (US) Board of Directors since 2005.  Mr. Warren was recently honored at ASF’s fund-raising dinner in New York for his accomplishments in restoring salmon populations throughout eastern Canada and the northeastern United States, in particular dam removal that will open up 1000 miles of habitat in Maine’s Penobscot River to Atlantic salmon and ten other species of sea-run fish.
