Will Aspinwall founded Flaring Solutions to solve the flaring crisis he experienced first-hand as General Counsel and Director of Business Development for a publicly traded oil and gas company on the London Stock Exchange. He knitted together his contacts in both the oil and gas and tech sectors to tackle the problem of routine natural gas flaring.
Mr. Aspinwall’s experience in oil and gas is augmented by his successful law practice where he is known for finding practical solutions to complex litigation issues. He began his career in the federal courts clerking for Judge Procter Hug Jr., the former Chief Judge of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He later served as a Deputy District Attorney in Denver, Colorado. Mr. Aspinwall has tried more than 20 jury trials to verdict in both civil and criminal matters. He also serves as a faculty member and instructor for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA).
Will has been an active member of the Silicon Valley Blockchain Society (SVBS) since 2018. He drafted their antidiscrimination policies and sits as an SVBS Culture Committee Member.
Will is passionate about sustainable, economic, and scalable solutions to the transportation and storage of stranded energy.
