Jennifer devotes her practice to energy regulation before state regulatory commissions, focused primarily on transactions for the certification, financing, development, acquisition and disposition of energy/utility assets. She has been involved in various proceedings on behalf of electric and natural gas utilities before the Virginia State Corporation Commission and the North Carolina Utilities Commission.

She has assisted investor-owned utilities and electric cooperatives in filings and hearings before state regulatory commissions, and in filings before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), including rates and tariffs, affiliate transactions/asset transfers and electric transmission regulation. She has assisted in numerous rate cases and in proceedings securing regulatory approvals of transmission lines, generation facilities and affiliate arrangements.
