Electric - Energy Regulation & Compliance Counseling

A large component of our practice involves “day-to-day” counseling, advice, and representation before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on regulations and policies implicit in the construction and operation of electric generation and transmission projects and natural gas and oil production, pipeline and storage infrastructure, as well as energy trading and marketing operations. The firm assists clients in developing effective regulatory compliance and risk assessment strategies, and in responding to enforcement actions, investigations, and audits. We represent clients on issues such as standards of conduct, affiliate transactions, and compliance with NERC reliability standards. The firm also provides transactional and regulatory counsel in corporate mergers, acquisitions, and reorganizations, as well as energy asset acquisitions and sales.
