Energy Regulation

Mapping solutions to regulatory challenges.

While pushing the energy industry forward, our clients face a regulatory landscape that often pushes right back. Husch Blackwell has a long track record of helping clients overcome regulatory obstacles at both the federal and state level in order to move important projects forward.

Our energy regulation attorneys provide a full range of legal services and guidance to clients subject to government regulation of energy. We handle regulatory, litigation, and business issues affecting the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity; regional power markets; and natural gas, crude oil, petroleum products and renewable fuels. We also regularly advise clients on rate and cost allocation issues, as well as interconnection procedures in regional transmission organizations (RTOs) and independent system operators (ISOs) across the country.

Our team includes the former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), former FERC and state regulatory commission members, and former legislative professionals responsible for shaping energy policy, as well as two attorneys who formerly worked at the Texas Public Utility Commission (PUC) handling contested Certificates of Convenience and Need (CCN) and rulemakings. This collective experience and insider’s perspective give our clients a valuable competitive edge.
