Regulatory – FERC and Organized Markets
The regulation of the energy industry is a maze of federal and state jurisdictional issues.
Successfully navigating this complex legal and regulatory landscape requires expertise with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), state governments and wholesale power markets. Wilkinson Barker Knauer’s energy team provides clients with insights derived from years of experience at the highest levels of the energy regulatory profession.
The firm’s federal energy practice group includes a former FERC Commissioner, former state regulatory commission Chairmen and attorneys who have successfully shepherded matters before federal and state regulatory bodies.

We understand the need to ensure that our client service is both efficient and cost-effective. Our insight into how federal energy regulation works and how it intersects with state public policies is unparalleled.
