Energy Policy

In representing clients at the intersection of law and public policy, McGuireWoods has deep and unique experience at both the state and federal levels. With a particular focus on energy and environmental policy, we integrate our legal and consulting resources in addressing client matters. By participating in legislative and rulemaking proceedings at federal and state levels, we help clients have a voice in shaping energy and other policies affecting their business and industry.

In many cases, a meeting with regulators can open and foster a dialogue in which a level of mutual understanding is more powerful than an impersonal exchange of pleadings. As part of this strategy, we open and maintain lines of communication with regulators, decision-makers in Congress and state capitals, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

We provide these services through our lawyers and the professionals of McGuireWoods Consulting, a full-service public affairs subsidiary. McGuireWoods Consulting offers federal, state and local government relations; strategic communications; grassroots advocacy; and infrastructure and economic development services.

Additionally, we have developed a broad knowledge of state laws and regulations affecting the development of regulated and non-regulated power projects. Where necessary, we have participated in efforts to amend state laws to remove impediments to restructuring and power project development. Through our relationships, we are able to offer our clients access to real-time information about, and resources that affect, the legal and political climate for power project development in many states.
