Energy Enforcement

Our attorneys are experienced in assisting numerous clients with compliance, audits and investigation responses. We have a large team of energy industry professionals across many of our offices. Recently, we strengthened our team by adding a former top enforcement attorney from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) who led some of the most high profile cases that agency brought in the last few years. That attorney was significantly involved in developing the new FERC Penalty Guidelines, and is familiar with the leading enforcement officials at other agencies who also watch the energy sector. McGuireWoods is well-positioned to assist clients with the following:

  • Direct Enforcement Defense
  • Electric Reliability Matters
  • External Audit Response
  • Internal Investigations
  • Prosecution or Defense of Complaints at FERC
  • Related Litigation
  • General FERC Compliance Program Design & Counseling
  • Electric Reliability Compliance Counseling
  • Self-Report Evaluation & Execution
  • No Action Letter & Other Guidance Requests
  • Informal Complaints to FERC Staff
