The Edison Electric Institute (EEI), the association that represents all U.S. investor-owned electric companies, has an outstanding opportunity for an Associate General Counsel, Energy Regulation.
The Associate General Counsel, Energy Regulation, will analyze, from both a legal and policy perspective, a broad range of energy regulatory topics, focused primarily on the activities of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

On assigned matters, this attorney will lead the development and drafting of appropriate written materials (i.e., comments, testimony, protests, etc.) to advocate for industry positions. This attorney also will support a wide range of FERC-related efforts at EEI, including transmission development and operation; supply side and markets activities; and other issues as they arise (mergers and acquisitions, taxes, codes of conduct, etc.). Finally, this attorney will engage in direct FERC outreach and relationship development.
The successful applicant will have:
J.D. from an accredited law school and membership in good standing in a local state bar.
