Led by our acclaimed energy attorneys and advocates, our team represents energy clients that are adverse to monopoly utilities. ThompsonMcMullan is one of few law firms in Virginia with a significant energy law practice that provides expert counsel to consumers, third party developers, and competitive suppliers — but never to monopolies.
Our experts are regulars before the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC), advising competitive suppliers and developers in licensure, siting, interconnection, and other regulatory proceedings that can broaden their access to the Virginia market.
Working with our appellate group, we can also help our clients preserve victories against monopolies before the Virginia Supreme Court. In addition, we advise government affairs teams on major energy legislation considered by the Virginia General Assembly. Beyond energy, we represent cable and broadband companies and Competitive Local Exchange Companies (CLECs) before state, federal, and local agencies and administrative bodies.
