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 affecting natural gas, telecommunications, and pilotage services.

We also represent commercial, industrial and residential ratepayers before the LPSC, other regulatory bodies, and in state and federal courts, including contract and transactional issues, overcharge complaints, and quality of service complaints. We counsel clients on the construction and operation of cogeneration and nonutility merchant power generation facilities in Louisiana. And we represent numerous clients in the potential deregulation of the electric market within Louisiana and in matters involving access to and competition within the wholesale power market.
