Mindy McGrath advises public and private companies and utilities on regulatory, compliance and enforcement matters before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and state public utility commissions.
Her experience before FERC includes representing both interstate gas pipelines and pipeline customers in Natural Gas Act Section 4 and 5 rate case proceedings, Section 7 certificate proceedings, and representing electric and gas utilities in numerous other administrative proceedings. Drawing on her experience, Mindy frequently advises clients with asset management agreements and supply agreements, and provides FERC compliance training to gas and electric utilities.
At the state level, Mindy assists electric and gas utilities with rate case proceedings, including the extensive discovery processes associated with those cases. Outside of rate cases, Mindy represents clients in annual prudency proceedings, customer complaint proceedings and other ongoing regulatory matters.
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.
