A group led by McCarthy is assisting Central Maine Power Company with regulatory issues arising from the $950m New England Clean Energy Connect transmission project; key responsibilities include FERC filings and representation in a transmission rate case. Other highlights for the firm included serving as regulatory counsel to the committee of lenders for ExGen Texas Power, an independent natural gas-fired generator, with David Perlman (DC) acting as lead partner. Also in the DC office, Michael Brooks focuses on representing clients under investigation by federal bodies, including FERC and CFTC. David Poe (DC), Deanna King (Austin) and Paul Fox (Seattle) are also noteworthy. The team was strengthened by the arrival of Counsel Cheryl Foley from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in January 2018.
