Energy providers and energy users in New Hampshire and New England continue to face a volatile marketplace and a complex regulatory environment. Devine Millimet takes pride in providing its clients guidance through the legal and regulatory tangle to achieve their business goals as sellers or buyers of electricity and natural gas. We are uniquely positioned to serve clients in this challenging area with the arrival in April of 2012 of Tom Getz, formerly the Chairman of the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission and Vice-Chair of the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee.
Since its inception in 1947, Devine Millimet has advised a variety of clients, including investor owned utilities, municipalities, cooperatives, generators, pipelines, competitive providers, and, industrial and commercial customers, on the spectrum of energy issues that have emerged as deregulation and restructuring have taken hold at the federal and state levels in the natural gas and electric industries.
Devine Millimet employs a full service, team-centered approach to serving its clients’ legal needs. Whether it involves regulatory compliance or proceedings before public utility commissions, state and local permitting or siting approval, corporate transactional assistance, contract negotiation, or litigation support, Devine Millimet has the skilled, experienced attorneys needed to deliver positive results in a timely fashion.
In addition, Devine Millimet attorneys have extensive experience with investor-owned and municipal water and sewer utilities. The firm has a strong record of assisting our utility clients in addressing local permitting needs as well as state environmental and economic regulatory requirements.
