Jennifer Key is an experienced first-chair lawyer who provides major electric utilities with advice and guidance on the complexities of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulation, and ensures that FERC regulations are adopted and implemented in a manner that is fair and reasonable. Her acute understanding of the intersection of state and federal jurisdiction enables her to successfully shepherd clients through the process of challenging both states and the FERC as necessary, where jurisdictional boundaries are crossed.
Jennifer advises her clients in administrative litigation, transactional matters, and compliance matters, particularly with regard to transmission, interconnection, the Public Utilities Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA), wholesale distribution, and FERC filing requirements. She also provides antitrust counseling to utilities.
As a complement to her practice, Jennifer shares her knowledge and talents in furtherance of the industry, serving as both an author of and contributor to the Annual Electricity Report for the Public Utility, Transportation, and Communications Law Section of the American Bar Association. She also is on the Electricity Committee of the Energy Bar Association.
