Ms. Gast became associated with the Firm upon her graduation from law school in May of 1997. Her focus is primarily on matters involving electricity before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the U.S. Court of Appeals: advising municipal and public utility commission clients on rate case litigation, regulatory compliance, enforcement matters, standards of conduct, municipal law, energy contracts and, more generally, energy law and policy. Since July 2006, when FERC designated the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) as the Electric Reliability Organization to establish a system of mandatory, enforceable reliability standards, Ms. Gast has also focused on compliance issues related to NERC and the Regional Reliability Organizations, such as the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC), for her municipal clients. Ms. Gast became a shareholder of the Firm in the Fall of 2002.

Prior to joining the Firm, Ms. Gast was employed in 1995 as a law clerk with Preston Gates Ellis & Rouvelas Meeds in Washington, D.C. She worked with senior attorneys on matters in antitrust, copyright infringement, and various lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill. She also assisted in the drafting of several bills that received bipartisan support by the U.S. Congress.

While we are happy to have you contact us by telephone, U.S. mail, electronic mail or facsimile transmission, however, merely contacting DWGP or any DWGP attorney through these or other means does not create an attorney-client relationship. Establishing an attorney-client relationship depends on several factors, and we urge you to ask a DWGP attorney about such factors before conveying information that you regard as confidential. Communications to DWGP or a DWGP attorney prior to establishing an attorney-client relationship or otherwise verifying with a DWGP attorney that such communications may be held confidential may not be privileged or confidential and therefore may become subject to disclosure.
