Energy Regulatory

You drive innovation in the energy marketplace.

Navigating the increasingly complex and multilayered regulatory landscape that underpins the energy sector can seem all consuming. The lawyers in the Energy Regulatory Practice Group at Hogan Lovells counsel energy and natural resources market stakeholders on a full range of legal issues.

We handle matters regulated by U.S. administrative agencies (including FERC, the NRC, and DOE) and their international counterparts. Due diligence. Regulatory approvals for mergers and acquisitions. We counsel financial firms on investments. Innovators on bringing ideas to market. Established companies on growth. And new companies entering the field.

Practice members include former counsels at regulatory agencies and commissions, including a former General Counsel for the U.S. Department of Energy and former advisors from the U.S. Department of Interior, and leading global energy companies. We deliver pragmatic solutions for the natural gas, oil, nuclear, electric, renewable, and petrochemical industries.

Our leading natural gas pipeline, LNG project development, and FERC regulatory practice lawyers handle multibillion dollar project developments and complex rate administrative proceedings.

In the electricity sector, we cover rate proceedings, distributed generation, demand response, climate regulation, transmission permitting, efficiency standards compliance, and new technology development.

Our nuclear energy team helps energy facility owners, operators, developers, investors, and vendors navigate intricate regulations. We also advise clients associated with radioactive materials or non-power reactors.

In an increasingly complex global market, we can plot a course through obstacles to help you achieve a competitive advantage and minimize risk.
