Gary Morgans provides major electric utilities with leading representation in rate of return on equity and other rate cases before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Most notably, Gary successfully managed the firm’s representation of a major California public utility in its wholesale and retail transmission rate case at the FERC, and managed the firm’s representation of a large northeastern utility in its wholesale transmission rate case.
He also defends public utilities against complaints about transmission access and in matters concerning allegations about utilities’ compliance with their standards of conduct, code of conduct, and transmission tariff. Chambers USA notes that Gary has “specialist expertise in hydroelectric regulatory matters” and “particular ability in electric utility rate cases.”
Gary has specific and valuable insight into FERC matters due to his tenure at the FERC. Before entering private practice, he worked in the Office of General Counsel’s hydroelectric licensing section for six years, where he supervised the preparation of FERC orders and litigated a lengthy hydroelectric licensing case.
He then served as a legal adviser to Commissioner Charles G. Stalon in the hydroelectric and electric rate areas, as Chairman Raymond J. O’Connor’s hydroelectric licensing assistant, and as supervisory trial attorney in the electric litigation section.
