Electric Power

We have decades of experience representing clients in all aspects of power generation and transmission regulation, licensing and ratemaking. Clients choose us because we are an industry leader with a proven track record of success in nearly every type of law that affects energy regulation, including corporate, tax, environmental and litigation.

Our lawyers represent electric transmission and distribution utilities, independent power producers, power marketers and investors in energy companies before various regulatory agencies. We have served as regulatory counsel on some of the largest transactions in the power sector. For example, we acted as lead FERC counsel to Great Plains in its $15 billion merger with Westar, as well as Rockland Capital in the acquisition of six generating facilities in Ohio and Indiana from AES.

We are one of the few firms with the experience necessary to address the continuing need for major capital expenditures by the US electric industry to support investment in transmissions and renewables. This work includes responding to state requests for proposals; litigation and regulatory approvals for new and existing infrastructure owners to receive adequate compensation to develop, produce and delivery renewable energy to load centers; and transaction-related regulatory approval for renewable energy mergers and acquisition. Our experience includes advising on multi-million projects, such as Equinor’s offshore transmission project in New York and the $950 million New England Clean Energy Connect transmissions project, which interconnects renewable resources in remote areas to the electric transmission grid.
