Energy Regulation, Markets and Enforcement > Overview

Akin Gump’s energy regulation, markets and enforcement practice combines a client service culture with the experience needed to address the most complex and pressing needs of energy industry participants. Our team includes a former commissioner of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as well as a deep bench of experienced practitioners. This gives us a unique perspective on the agency’s deliberative processes and the practical implementation of government policies. We represent a wide range of energy companies in strategic, regulatory, transactional and litigation matters, and are actively involved in representations before FERC, the Department of Energy, and other federal agencies, Congress, federal and state courts and state regulatory commissions. Our partners have been recognized by Chambers USA in the Energy: Electricity (Regulatory and Litigation) category and by Public Utilities Fortnightly as leading lawyers in their field.
