Wendell F. Holland, Director
I will bring valuable skill sets, expertise, reputation, and client relationships to an Energy & Utilities practice. My energy and utility company expertise includes exposure to virtually all types of issues involving electric, natural gas, telecommunications, water, railroad, and transportation utilities.

As Chairman of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, I oversaw the implementation of three major pieces of Pennsylvanian legislation that represented comprehensive and sweeping changes to renewable energy, telecommunications reform and consumer services. I also chaired the Commission at a time of utility mergers and acquisitions of historic proportions, and, restructurings in the energy, telecommunications and water industries. I also have served as an Administrative Law Judge for Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, a partner at a NYC based international law firm, and on the Board of Directors for large corporations.

I served as treasurer of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC), on NARUC¹s Executive Committee, Board of Directors and as chairman of the Association¹s Investment and Audit committees. I also served as President of regional organizations including the Mid Atlantic Regulatory Utility Commissioners and the Organization of PJM States, Inc. (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland). In both organizations, I worked with state utility regulators and industry stakeholders on regional solutions to complex utility issues such as implementation of the federal Energy Policy Act of Œ05, competitive markets, transmission siting, telecommunications inter-carrier compensation and consolidations in the water and wastewater industries.

I have extensive international experience as well. I have advised clients or lectured on energy law in over 25 countries. Under my tenure as Chairman, the Pennsylvania Commission was recognized as regulatory Agency of the Year by the United States Energy Association for its involvement in regulatory reform and energy sustainability in several countries around the world. Previously, while at LeBoeuf, Lamb, I was retained by the multinational Southern African Development Community to draft its Energy Protocol and served as lead energy counsel.

I have developed and maintained very strong relationships with a variety of energy & utility companies and industry professionals throughout the country. My previous experience, skills, and relationships will help an organization expand its existing client base and improve its, reputation, visibility, and market position in the energy and public utility industries.
