Energy litigation: conventional power

Within: Energy litigation: conventional power

Conventional energy litigation is handled by the wider litigation department at Bracewell LLP, which is led by Stephen Crain. Recent highlights include Bryan Dumesnil and Bradley Benoit representing the board of directors of Southern Copper Corporation in a commercial dispute arising from three transactions involving power plants owned by a subsidiary of the client. The plaintiffs are shareholders in Southern Copper Corporation and claim that the transactions unfairly deprived the company of valuable assets. In the administrative litigation space, Catherine McCarthy (DC) and others are representing Central Maine Power Company and The United Illuminating Company in multiple FERC complaint proceedings in which the counterparties seek a reduction in the return on equity granted to the clients. Additionally, the group represents clients in contested rate cases and FERC enforcement matters. Deanna King (Austin), Christopher Dodson and J Clifford Gunter are also highly recommended. Named attorneys are based in Houston, unless otherwise noted.
