WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
They provide outstanding service and results on various litigation and energy-related matters.
In addition, our attorneys have been called on by Congress over the years to provide expert testimony on various energy topics.
We represent clients in matters involving the creation and operation of electric generating companies and the licensing, construction, purchase or sale of generating assets, including hydroelectric, fossil, and nuclear powered facilities. We are also involved in the procurement of fuel and other services (such as LTSAs) for these various forms of generation. In addition, we regularly represent clients in connection with the use of electric transmission and distribution systems and in transactions involving the purchase or sale of generating capacity and energy. Moreover, our attorneys have applied their regulatory expertise to the representation of clients in the telecommunications industry in matters before state public utility commissions as well as the Federal Communications Commission.
The Energy Practice's more recent significant representations include a first of its kind proceeding before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission involving the market rate authority of participants in the wholesale markets, acquisitions involving a variety of fossil and nuclear powered generating assets, and the development and licensing of new nuclear reactors. Our attorneys were also actively involved in providing advice to clients regarding the Energy Policy Act of 2005 as that legislation was being considered by the Congress and continue to be directly involved as the various provisions of that Act are now being implemented.
