Areas of Practice
Andrew represents energy companies in federal and state regulatory matters, particularly before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), state public utility commissions and appellate courts. He counsels independent generators, electric utilities, oil and natural gas pipelines, natural gas distribution companies and other industry participants on regulatory issues, including those related to electric transmission development, natural gas supply, compliance, standards of conduct, renewable energy project development, jurisdiction and utility ratemaking.
Andrew also regularly helps clients navigate complex transmission tariff-related issues, such as those involving some of the largest electric transmission providers in the U.S. In addition, he advises oil and gas pipelines on state regulatory requirements associated with the development of new oil and gas facilities and represents major interstate pipelines in FERC proceedings.
Andrew maintains an active pro bono practice. He was first chair in a fully-litigated proceeding before the District of Columbia Office of Administrative Hearings and has represented clients in appeals before the U.S. Social Security Administration. Outside of the firm, he is a Vice Chair of the American Bar Association’s Energy Infrastructure, Siting and Reliability Committee, and he is a member of the Energy Bar Association.
Before entering private practice, Andrew served as an attorney-adviser to four administrative law judges at FERC. In that role, he drafted orders, notices and initial decisions, as well as assisted in conducting settlement and hearing proceedings in complex electricity, oil, natural gas pipeline and renewable energy cases. Additionally, he worked in FERC's Office of Energy Market Regulation, where he focused on electricity matters in the western U.S.
