Legal 500 Recognizes Van Ness Feldman as Top Tier Energy Regulatory Firm

May 31, 2018

For the seventh year in a row, The Legal 500 United States 2018, recognized Van Ness Feldman as a national leader in Energy Regulatory law.  The firm is one of only two, “Top Tier” Energy Regulatory law firms for Conventional Power and one of only three “Top Tier” Oil & Gas regulatory firms to be recognized in the United States.       

Highlighting the firm’s work in the electric, hydropower, oil & gas, and pipeline safety areas, the publication describes “the ‘experienced and responsive’ team at Van Ness Feldman LLP [as] excel[ing] in representing clients before the FERC.”

The firm was also recognized among the top firms in the Environment: Regulatory area for a seventh time, and the firm also received a ranking for its government affairs practice for the third year in a row.

Both Michael Pincus, a partner in the firm’s Pipeline & LNG practice, and Justin Moeller, a partner in the firm’s Electric practice were also recognized as “next generation lawyers.”  In addition, 13 other Van Ness Feldman attorneys were recommended by the publication in their respective practice areas.

The Legal 500 only ranks a small number of firms in the US that have a truly national presence coupled with the capability to handle sophisticated and complex work.  The Legal 500 also produces a wide ranging series of resources for in-house lawyers including roundtables, client insight reports, and recognizes and rewards the best in-house lawyers through their GC Powerlist series and The Legal 500 Awards.
