Energy & Utility Law

Our Energy & Utility Group has well-honed expertise in energy and utility law, policy and regulation. We have experience working with government entities and state and federal agencies, including the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Our Energy & Utility attorneys are instrumental in interpreting, developing, drafting and implementing statutory and regulatory regimes. They possess the perspective and prowess to provide our clients invaluable advice on how to navigate this highly regulated area. Together with our Business Law & Commercial Transactions Group, our attorneys assist clients with a full range of business service in the context of mergers and acquisitions and other changes in corporate control as well as reviewing, drafting and negotiating energy and utilities contracts.

Our experience representing the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, the New Jersey Pinelands Commission and other state and local government agencies – as well as private clients – positions us to provide the expert counsel in several areas, including:

  • Commercial and industrial energy users
  • Complex rate cases
  • Government entities
  • Easements
  • Infrastructure siting
  • Initial and amended tariffs
  • Licensing
  • Municipal consents and regulatory submissions
  • Producers of traditional and clean energy
  • Rate setting
  • Regulated and deregulated utilities
  • Third-party suppliers
  • Wholesale water agreements

Our Energy & Utility team also works with the Firm’s  Environmental Law Practice Group, which gives them a unique understanding of clean-energy programs and policy. Our attorneys serve as General Counsel to several large New Jersey water and sewer utilities, refining their knowledge and expertise on various local, state and federal statutes and regulations that control day-to-day operations at these entities. This informs our attorneys and in turn their effective representation of these organizations. Our involvement in renewable energy and energy-efficiency initiatives on behalf of government as well as residential and commercial customers gives us indispensable knowledge of areas such as:

  • Federal tax credits
  • Energy audits
  • Grant qualification
  • Infrastructure development
  • Siting
  • Solar renewable energy credits (SRECs) under the 2012 Solar Act
  • State and federal regulatory compliance matters
  • State incentives (including net-metering)
  • Power purchase agreements (PPAs)
  • Project finance
