Public Utility Law

Our Attorneys provide counsel to clients in regulated industries including water and wastewater, telecommunications and energy. Members of our Firm have counseled public utilities, municipalities, developers and utility consultants on a broad spectrum of utility, business, real estate, condemnation and right-of-way issues since 1960. Our public utility representation includes participation in certification, rate making and other proceedings before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission and other State agencies.

We advise and assist clients on matters and transactions including entity creation and structuring, initial certification, negotiation of construction, utility supply and service agreements, utility joint ventures, utility mergers and acquisitions, utility financing, and land use, real estate, right-of-way and easement acquisition, and condemnation transactions and proceedings.
