Energy & Natural Resources

Energy Regulation & Compliance

Our attorneys are skilled at guiding energy companies through the maze of energy industry rules and regulations as well as federal, state and local laws. In this ever-changing landscape, we know what it takes to assist clients with a range of complex compliance needs from initial facility permits and certification to interconnection applications and processes to regulatory approvals for financing, mergers, acquisitions and sales of certified facilities. Our attorneys monitor industry developments, market trends and regulatory rulings and provide clients with proactive advice that helps to keep them informed of regulatory developments, assess and manage risk, recognize opportunities, maximize returns in their energy and natural resources transactions and mitigate or prevent enforcement actions. We have a depth of experience representing both utilities and interveners in rate cases, rulemaking dockets and declaratory ruling and complaint proceedings before state public utility commissions.

When necessary, we also represent energy and natural resources clients in administrative appeals through the court system and other formal actions and proceedings regarding the proper interpretation and application of these laws, rules and regulations.
