Edward M. Green

Edward M. Green is the General Counsel of the International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI).  He recently retired from the international law firm of Crowell & Moring LLP, where he practiced law for over 26 years.  During that time, Mr. Green’s practice focused primarily on issues relating to environmental concerns in the mining sector, as well as the safety and health of miners.  Beginning in 2003 and until the end of 2019, he served as ICMI's outside counsel.

Prior to his affiliation with Crowell & Moring in 1993, Mr. Green was the General Counsel and Secretary of the American Mining Congress for 16 years.  Mr. Green's experience with mining started in the formative days of the modern federal mine safety and health program beginning in 1970, when he served as a young lawyer at the US Department of the Interior, during which he helped write many of the mine safety and health standards still in effect today.  He concluded his federal government career in 1977 as Chief of Staff of the Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration (MESA), which later became MSHA.

Mr. Green received both his B.A. degree and his J.D. degree from Boston University.
