Holland & Knight's Energy Team includes former Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) attorneys, former counsel to energy companies – including large investor-owned electric utilities and importers of liquefied natural gas (LNG) – as well as former member of Congress who served on the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee. We have the knowledge and experience to assist our energy clients in preparing for, and participating in, the rapidly changing electric and natural gas industries.
We work closely with attorneys and policy advisors in our Environment, Natural Resources and Public Policy & Regulation practices to address all issues that clients encounter in the production and sale of energy. We have represented energy clients before FERC, the Department of Energy, U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, state public utility commissions (PUCs), electric regional transmission organizations (RTOs) and independent system operators (ISOs).

Energy Team members are trained in traditional cost-of-service ratemaking, as well as more recent competitive regulatory theory. Working before FERC and the various state PUCs, we understand the importance of tailoring regulatory strategies to meet the unique needs of a particular client and accommodate existing and anticipated state and national regulation, technology and infrastructure.
