    Summary

    The Legal Division of the Office of Administrative Litigation (OAL) in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is seeking a full-time attorney in our dynamic energy trial practice.


    The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is an independent agency that regulates the interstate transmission of natural gas, oil and electricity. OAL’s lawyers conduct complex multi-party litigation in proceedings before the agency's administrative law judges, involving the rates, terms, and conditions under which oil and gas pipelines and electric utilities provide interstate energy services. Our cases involve extensive technical and legal analysis. OAL’s goal is to arrive at just and reasonable rates that are not unduly preferential or unduly discriminatory through advocacy in cases set for hearing by the Commission. As an OAL lawyer, you will work in multidisciplinary case teams, with in-house expert technical witnesses who testify and participate in settlement negotiations, regarding an array of ratemaking disciplines including accounting, engineering, and finance. You will engage in discovery, depositions, motions practice, and other pre-trial procedures to prepare cases for administrative hearings. At trial, you will prepare staff witnesses for examination, cross-examine witnesses, and respond to evidentiary objections. You will apply your case knowledge and legal skills when negotiating settlements. OAL places a premium on managing multiple assignments and quickly learning challenging technical concepts. In addition, to succeed in OAL, you must have strong analytic, oral, writing and team skills; familiarity with federal energy law or energy industry exposure is a plus. This full-time position holds the potential to advance already developed litigation skills.

    Position is included in the Bargaining Unit.
