Energy, Utilities and Renewables

Energy is a critical component of today's economy here and abroad. The energy marketplace is rapidly developing to meet the needs of today and the tomorrow. Pierce Atwood's energy attorneys appreciate the importance of energy to successful business and strive to help our clients reach their energy goals. We help industry participants navigate and comply with federal and state regulations, manage the cost of energy supplies, hedge energy market risks, develop and permit clean energy resources, or expand transmission and pipeline infrastructure to meet regional reliability needs. Our clients include regulated electric utilities, gas utilities, pipelines, state governments and regulators, producers, buyers and sellers of electricity and natural gas, hydropower facilities, independent power developers and energy marketers in virtually all aspects of utility regulation, energy project development, energy procurement, mergers and acquisitions, risk management and smart grid implementation.
