Our lawyers have previously been in the role of decision-maker on the other side of the state regulatory table, or have served as the legal counsel advising the state regulators on the legal nuances of their decisions. Others have negotiated the power contracts to be approved or have helped to craft the statutory language outlining the regulatory point at issue.
Our clients include telecommunications providers, including wireless and cable providers, electric and gas utilities, natural gas pipelines, independent power producers, electric transmission companies, developers and owners of wind power and other renewable energy sources, and commercial and industrial consumers of the products and services of these energy producers. BrownWinick attorneys provide an array of administrative law services in the regulatory proceedings of the Iowa Utilities Board and its regulatory counterparts in several other Midwestern states, as well as before FERC, and state and federal courts. These might include various filings, hearings, rulemakings, other agency actions and appeals. We have provided commercial and industrial clients with strategic counsel, energy contract negotiation and development, and full intervention services in rate and service proceedings before state public utility commissions.
We understand the vital role that energy and communications play in the economic vitality of a single business or the broader community as a whole. We also know the continued importance to both the providing and the consuming client of balancing innovative public utility services with reliability and reasonable costing.
Our clients' representation and satisfaction are our most important concerns, while we strive to be professional and ethical in all our pursuits. The full resources of the broader services of BrownWinick, whether in litigation, real estate, taxation or copyrights are available to back up the public utility practice area team as needed to serve our clients.
