Luke Hagedorn is passionate about assisting clients with providing diverse, affordable, and reliable energy to their customers. Luke’s dedication to understanding the complex and changing statutes and regulations that govern the energy industry allows him to work with public utility, renewable energy, oil and gas, and end-user companies to address the unique legal needs that arise out of generation, production or consumption of energy and natural resources.
Over the course of his development as an energy attorney, Luke has been struck by the fascinating interplay between business considerations, politics, economics, and regulatory concerns that form the core of the United States’ energy policy. Luke’s understanding of these complicated facets allows him to help companies navigate the complex legal issues that arise at every stage of an energy project’s life.
By focusing his practice in both transactional and regulatory aspects of energy projects, Luke strives to provide well-rounded guidance relating to clients’ current legal needs, as well as efficiently identify and mitigate potential complications that might arise down the road.
In addition to his legal work, Luke founded a blog, RenewableEnergyLawInsider.com, in 2011 in an effort to remain on the cutting-edge of the business and legal issues that impact his clients’ daily lives. This blog allows Luke to stay up-to-date on industry trends while also providing a vehicle for informing renewable energy project developers on what he sees as significant, surprising, and sometimes counter-intuitive ways in which renewable energy projects can be affected by local, state, and federal policy initiatives.
