Representation During Regulatory Proceedings
At Ezell Law Firm, LLC, we represent electric and gas utilities and other regulated entities before the Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC). We also represent public and private companies who have a vested interest in the outcomes of LPSC decisions — such as a business that would be negatively impacted by a significant rate increase or other adverse policy determination.
For more than 14 years we have provided trusted legal counsel in these complex matters, consulting with elected commissioners and executive staff on behalf of our clients. We know the regulatory system, how it works and how best to work within it for the benefit of our clients.
Lawyer Representation In Rate Proceedings And Public Service Commission Matters
Companies that fall under the jurisdiction of the LPSC must seek approval for rate changes and fee changes. If you operate one of these businesses, we can represent you in rate proceedings to secure a fair rate of return on assets or investment. Regulatory proceedings may also be required before other significant undertakings such as construction projects.
We represent a wide range of clients who are subject to the governance of the LPSC, including:
- Publicly owned utilities providing electric, water, wastewater, natural gas and telecommunication services
- Electric cooperatives
- Waste haulers
- Household goods carriers
- Nonconsensual towing companies
- Intrastate pipelines
A Strong Voice For Violations And Rule-Making Concerns
If you are subject to regulation by the LPSC, you are subject to enforcement actions and investigatory proceedings. We help clients respond to allegations of violations, and we also assist clients in initiating or participating in rule-making that may impact the business of a company or industry.
