Energy Law


The energy industry is highly complex – and so is its legal practice. Demands on the energy sector are growing exponentially, with steady advancements pushing the market to evolve at rapid pace. All the while, it remains one of the most highly regulated industries in the nation.

Few firms in Michigan can match our extensive experience, depth of knowledge, and successful record in energy and alternative energy-related matters. For more than 30 years, attorneys in our practice have guided clients from start to finish – responding to bids, negotiating contracts, drafting agreements – while advising on regulatory issues and navigating bureaucracy.

Our long-established history of addressing agencies and decision-makers includes:

  • Representing user groups or large volume customers seeking reasonable rates and interconnection terms from large investor-owned utilities.
  • Working with independent power producers, PURPA qualifying facilities, merchant plants, and alternative electric suppliers.
  • Assisting in the development of several generation projects.
  • Participating in regulatory proceedings and governmental relations assistance, including FERC and MPSC.

We deal in all forms of energy and alternative energy:
