Polsinelli has a long history of representing clients in regulated industries with the greatest strength of our Public Utilities practice being found in the experience of its individual members. Our team includes former in-house attorneys and leaders of state regulatory agencies. Our members focus their collective efforts on understanding the unique challenges our clients face in the public utilities industry, as well as helping them manage the interplay of requirements from industry regulators.
Our Public Utilities attorneys are fully equipped to assist regulated and non-regulated utilities with a broad spectrum of legal issues. We routinely advise regulated public companies regarding state and federal regulatory issues before the many state utility commissions, state agencies, and the Federal energy regulatory commission. Our experience spans issues including regulatory compliance, transmission interconnections, certification proceedings, general investigation proceedings, ratemaking, mergers and acquisitions, rate tariff applications, and rulemaking proceedings.
The Public Utilities practice is led by Frank A. Caro, Jr., who previously served as general counsel for the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) and has represented many clients in numerous major telecommunications, electric, and natural gas proceedings in Kansas and Missouri in the past 25 years.
“Polsinelli knows the totality of my business and adds value to it, so they are very cost efficient for us - they understand my whole organization, and know their piece of the whole.”
