Lee L. Ewing

Associate

Mr. Ewing joined the Firm in 2018 from the Maine Public Utilities Commission (MPUC), where he served as a Staff Attorney since 2016. Mr. Ewing has used his retail regulatory background to advocate on behalf of Firm clients in rate proceedings before the New York Public Service Commission and the Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia. Mr. Ewing has also grown his federal practice since joining the Firm with work on cost-of-service rate cases of both electric transmission utilities and natural gas pipeline companies. Mr. Ewing’s practice includes wholesale market-based rate filings with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), energy and solar tax-equity transactions, the sale of FERC-jurisdictional assets, and energy market structure issues.

With the MPUC, Mr. Ewing participated in several complex matters concerning electric and natural gas utilities, including rate cases and certifications of public convenience and necessity. Mr. Ewing also acted as the lead attorney for the MPUC on proceedings involving renewable energy incentives and policies, long-term contracts between generators and Maine’s electric utilities, and several cases stemming from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. In addition, Mr. Ewing represented the MPUC on appeals of its decisions before the Maine Supreme Judicial Court.
