McCarter & English provides a full range of legal counsel to its energy and telecommunications clients. Services include transactional representation; regulatory advice; litigation; appeals; and representation before regulatory agencies.

In the dynamic energy industry, our clients operate fossil or nuclear power plants; transmit and deliver energy through local electric, natural gas or water distribution utilities; or engage in competitive retail sales of electricity and natural gas. Manufacturers and other large commercial customers of utilities are finding that for cost or reliability reasons, prudent risk management requires inside-the-fence development of distribution facilities like cogeneration or sustainable facilities such as solar, sometimes using a power purchase agreement with a third-party equity or tax investor.
