Lawyers Who Understand Regulations Governing Public Utilities

The regulations governing the energy, telecommunication, water and utility industries are complex and ever-evolving. Our firm devotes significant time and resources to ensure that our lawyers remain abreast of new regulations and any legislative trends that arise. If you need legal advice or guidance in these matters, it is wise to seek the counsel of experienced and knowledgeable attorneys.

Representation Before The Public Service Commission

The regulation of the nation’s energy, communication and water resources exists in an ever-changing environment. Public utilities must comply with complex rules, regulations and statutes promulgated or enacted by all levels of government — local, state and federal. The Jefferson City public utilities attorneys at Newman, Comley & Ruth P.C. have represented competitive telecommunications carriers, energy transmission and distribution companies, and companies providing regulated water and wastewater services.

Additionally, the firm has represented political subdivisions and residential associations affected by charges or practices of major public utilities. Primarily this representation is before the Missouri Public Service Commission and in the circuit and appellate courts of Missouri. Our representation includes applications for certificates of service authority, financing authority, proceedings seeking rate relief, merger and acquisition of regulated assets, the siting of transmission or generation facilities, and access to transmission systems and energy markets.
