Our Public Utilities group handles matters involving the Federal Energy Regulation Commission (FERC) and regularly participates with in-house counsel and other special counsel in connection with wholesale electric utility rate and transmission issues.
We also represent operators and owners of nuclear power plants. This practice includes proceedings before the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regarding internal investigations for nuclear plant operators of alleged wrongdoing, representing nuclear plant operators in investigations involving the NRC Office of Investigations, and whistleblower litigation before the Department of Labor.
Our attorneys also draft and negotiate complex transactions and contracts for electric utilities, primarily nuclear power plant owners and operators. This includes drafting agreements for the purchase, sale, and management of nuclear power plants.
