Nutter represents energy and utility companies in numerous areas of legal practice. Our clients include producers and distributors of petroleum and natural gas, public utility providers, including electric, water and transportation companies, power generation plants, municipalities, developers, contractors, financial institutions, and energy traders.
The firm represents energy clients before local, state and regional authorities to obtain permits and licenses for complex and, at times, controversial projects. With significant expertise in real estate development, financing, litigation, and environmental, zoning and land use issues, we help our clients initiate development, access financing, and move projects toward completion.
We also work with energy and power generation companies on a range of labor and employment matters, as well as mergers and acquisitions and other areas of corporate representation. In addition, we represent energy companies and traders in enforcement, audit, and compliance matters before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) involving allegations of market manipulation in natural gas and wholesale electricity markets.
