His clients include municipal joint action agencies, generation and transmission cooperatives, individual municipal and cooperative electric systems, larger end-users and other market participants.

A significant part of his practice entails helping clients interface with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on regulatory procedures, tariff and other rate filings, merger proceedings, and hydroelectric licensing and licensing compliance. Mr. Robbins is also engaged in the proceedings before the Nuclear Regulatory Commission relating to the proposed high level waste repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.

Much of Mr. Robbins' work focuses on helping clients interact with Regional Transmission Organizations, including the Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator, the PJM RTO, and the Southwest Power Pool RTO. The constantly changing landscape of the electric power industry brings new challenges to his clients and requires ongoing evaluation and modification of their business and legal strategies.
