About Rachael

Rachael Marsh draws on her years of experience as an attorney at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to advise stakeholders in the energy industry on matters with a nexus to FERC and other federal and state policymakers, including on issues related to the energy transition.

Rachael served as a FERC attorney from 2014 through 2021. She was involved in nearly all aspects of the Commission’s substantive work, including as a trial attorney in the Office of Administrative Litigation, an attorney-advisor in the Office of the General Counsel and most recently as lead legal advisor to former Chairman Neil Chatterjee. She was instrumental in shaping and advancing a suite of reforms supporting the energy transition, including landmark rulemakings on battery storage and distributed energy resources. Rachael also served as the Chairman’s chief reviewer and advisor on a broad range of legal issues, including market design and other matters in the PJM footprint; natural gas pipeline matters in the western United States; utilities in the US Southeast; bankruptcies; and high-profile enforcement matters.
