California Public Utilities Commission

Meyers Nave represents public entity and private business clients before the California Public Utilities Commission in safety regulatory matters relating to water, natural gas, electric, telecommunications, railroad, rail transit and passenger transportation. Our expertise includes helping clients navigate the CPUC’s increasing role in clean energy initiatives and policies. We provide clients with the strategic advantages and practical insights that our attorneys bring from their prior positions at major investor-owned utilities as well as experience gained from working at an internet-based energy and utility service provider. Our attorneys currently serve as lead counsel on behalf of numerous California cities and counties regarding catastrophic natural gas pipeline explosions throughout the state.
