Bracewell LLP has a particularly strong FERC practice and also represents clients before federal appellate and district courts. The group has significant FERC litigation experience, handling multi-party contested proceedings concerning issues such as market design and transmission, and Return-on-Equity disputes, as well as day-to-day counselling. The team works closely with its Policy Resolution group to advise on major renewable energy infrastructure projects, such as offshore wind and electricity transmission. Catherine McCarthy  heads the practice and handles the full range of issues, including centralized markets. The arrival of Rachael Marsh from the FERC in July 2021 has further bolstered the group’s offering, and comes in addition to the arrivals of Anne M.
