He is regarded as one of the leading advocates on environmental policy in Michigan and serves as chair of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce Energy and Environment Committee. Cumings serves as executive partner of Warner’s Lansing office and chairs the firm’s Government Affairs Practice Group.

Cumings has extensive experience with other policy areas, including health care, child welfare, tax, economic incentives, labor, energy, mining, licensing, religious issues and banking.
