Jonathan W. Gottlieb

With more than 25 years of experience—in federal government, private practice and as corporate counsel for a large international power developer—Jonathan Gottlieb advises energy and utility clients in the development, construction, financing, acquisition, divestiture and operation of energy generation, transmission and processing facilities across the United States and in more than 17 countries.

Jonathan represents a wide array of energy companies, including electric and natural gas utilities, independent power producers and developers, utility subsidiaries, midstream oil and gas companies, independent transmission companies, engineering and construction companies, and equipment vendors in connection with complex transactional, construction and regulatory matters involving natural gas, biomass, biofuels, electric power generation, natural gas and oil product pipelines, and high voltage transmission lines.

He also has substantial experience counseling clients in connection with multimillion-dollar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts, and the use of diverse fuel types, including biomass, natural gas, coal, wind, solar, hydroelectric and emerging energy storage technologies. Throughout his career, Jonathan has advised on projects involving more than two billion gallons of ethanol and biodiesel plant capacity.

Jonathan’s in-depth knowledge of these topics—particularly new regulatory developments and the financing and development of energy projects—allows him to effectively advocate on behalf of his clients and has made him an internationally recognized author and public speaker. He is frequently quoted as an industry thought leader in The New York Times, Commerce and Finance, USA Today, Business Week, The Examiner and the Chicago Tribune.

Jonathan has served as corporate counsel for three prominent organizations. Prior to entering private practice, Jonathan was an attorney adviser in the oil and gas litigation branch of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
