Public And Regulated Utilities

Our public utility practice attorneys have extensive experience representing all types of clients before the Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC) and other regulatory bodies. We represent regulated public utilities and other regulated entities before the LPSC in rate cases, cost of service investigations, prudence investigations, complaint proceedings, rule-making proceedings, and various other regulatory proceedings. Our representation of regulated entities includes those providing natural gas, telecommunications, and pilotage services.

We also represent commercial, industrial and residential customers on electricity, water and sewerage, trucking and other matters before the LPSC, other regulatory bodies, and in state and federal courts. Our representation of customers includes handling contract and transactional issues, overcharge complaints, rule-making proceedings, and quality of service complaints. We counsel clients on the construction and operation of cogeneration and nonutility merchant power generation facilities in Louisiana.
