Washington, D.C., April 20, 2015 - Day Pitney announced today that Evan C. Reese has joined the firm's Washington, D.C. office as a partner in the Energy and Utility Law Group. He joins the firm from Van Ness Feldman, LLP. Reese brings 15 years of experience representing electric and oil and gas companies in various regulatory and litigation matters, including representing clients before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
"I am looking forward to the chance to provide clients I have served for many years the full-range of services Day Pitney offers, including transactional work," said Reese. "For years I have served clients in all areas of the country, but have had limited involvement in the Northeast. Day Pitney’s well-known reputation in the Northeast will allow me to expand the reach of my practice to include that region of the country as well."
Reese advises a diverse set of clients, including investor-owned utilities, municipal electric utilities, independent power producers, renewable developers, oil/gas producers and other energy-related organizations and associations.
"Evan's practice is highly complementary to the firm's existing energy regulatory practice, especially in his knowledge of FERC-related matters," said Dave Doot, chair of the Energy and Utility Law department at Day Pitney. "He has experience representing a range of energy companies from national conglomerate to small producers on regulatory matters. His sophisticated work for major clients, particularly in the electric space, in such areas as electric transmission policy and rates, organized wholesale market rules and FERC investigations and audits will be an asset to the firm. We are enthusiastic about the chance with Evan to expand the services beyond regulatory work to clients he has represented."
Reese received his B.A. from Colgate University in 1995 and his J.D. from Tulane University Law School, cum laude, in 2000. He is an active member of the Energy Bar Association (EBA), was a recent past President of the Charitable Foundation of the EBA (CFEBA) and serves as a member of the Board of the Foundation of the Energy Law Journal.
Day Pitney will host a FERC 101 event, co-sponsored by Connecticut Power & Energy Society and EBA, on November 13 in its Hartford and Washington, DC offices.
Sebastian Lombardi will serve on a panel, "State Policies and the Markets: How the tension is playing out in PJM," at the Northeast Energy and Commerce Association's Power Markets Conference on November 8, at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Marlborough, MA.
