Our Approach

The Energy Regulatory team is integrated into Mintz’s Energy Transitions & Sustainable Infrastructure Practice. This model allows Mintz to provide insightful, nuanced, and collaborative services to clients. Importantly, our Energy Regulatory attorneys not only have significant private sector experience but have also worked previously for federal and state government regulators (including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) and at Regional Transmission Organizations. This background enables Mintz’s Energy Regulatory attorneys to provide detailed and differentiated counsel based on first-hand experience working for these regulatory bodies. While Mintz’s Energy Regulatory attorneys are experienced and savvy litigators, having represented clients in contested proceedings before FERC, state utility commissions, and federal courts of appeal, our primary aim is to find creative solutions that allow our clients to achieve their commercial goals while complying with applicable regulations.
