Mindy McGrath advises public and private companies and utilities on regulatory, compliance and enforcement matters before state public service commissions and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
Illustrative examples include representing both interstate gas pipelines and pipeline customers in Natural Gas Act Section 4 rate case proceedings before FERC; assisting natural gas local distribution companies with rate case proceedings, prudency proceedings and obtaining Service Area Determinations; and obtaining and amending certificates of public convenience on behalf of an interstate gas pipeline.
Mindy’s energy practice draws from, and benefits from, her litigation background. Prior to focusing on regulatory matters confronting the energy sector, Mindy handled complex commercial litigation cases in state and federal courts throughout North Carolina and in other jurisdictions.
Mindy has received numerous awards for her commitment to pro bono and public service. She volunteers with the Council for Children’s Rights and partners with Safe Alliance to represent victims of domestic violence.
