GreeneHurlocker Growing On The Move

This week, we’ll be getting ready for our new offices. Yes, we’re moving because we’re nearly busting at the seams, what with new clients and lawyers all around.

We’re occupying a larger and more convenient suite of offices in Libbie Square, an office development in west Richmond in the Willow Lawn corridor, a vibrant and growing area. We will have free parking, convenient access to major highways and other transportation and plenty of great spots to take our clients to lunch.

The address is 1807 Libbie Avenue, Suite 102, Richmond, VA, 23226. (If you forget it, it will be down there on the bottom of our web page.) All other contact details (phones, fax, email) are the same. We’re excited about our growth and the opportunity for more space for meetings and staff. We hope you are, as well, and will come to see us at your earliest opportunity.

Two years old and welcoming our newest associate.

Thanks to you, our clients and friends, GreeneHurlocker – within only two years – has doubled in size. We are grateful for the opportunity to represent companies in the energy and utilities industries, their partners, investors, executives and consumers in matters of regulation, finance, mergers and acquisitions, rates, agreements and, when necessary, litigation. It has been a great two years.

We’ve been gratified by the growth of our client base, which has allowed us to add new lawyers in the last seven months. In July, we welcome Leeron Avnery, an experienced corporate transactions and regulatory lawyer with whom we’ve worked in past years on energy matters.

Leeron will focus on work for renewable energy companies and investors, retail electricity producers and distributors, pricing agreements, procurement contracts, corporate finance and acquisitions. You can read all about Leeron here.

GreeneHurlocker Partners Again Selected As Virginia Super Lawyers

RICHMOND, VA, July 14, 2014 — GreeneHurlocker co-managing partners Brian Greene and Eric Hurlocker have been recognized as 2014 Super Lawyers in the area of Energy and Natural Resources, as published in the listing publication by Thomson Reuters.

Greene has been listed in nine consecutive editions of the Virginia Super Lawyers and Hurlocker has been listed in the most recent two. According to the publisher, only five percent of all attorneys in Virginia are recognized as Super Lawyers.

Greene maintains a diverse and sophisticated regional energy practice, representing a wide range of clients in several jurisdictions for regulatory, market and business matters. Hurlocker focuses on advising clients in the areas of energy law as well as commercial transactions and general corporate work for energy and technology companies, manufacturers and services providers, with a focus on renewable energy markets and investors. The GreeneHurlocker firm is currently celebrating its second anniversary.

The selections for this list are made by the research team at Super Lawyers through a patented review and rating process. The list is a Thomson Reuters business, and calls itself a research-driven, peer influenced rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The mission of Super Lawyers is to bring visibility to those attorneys who exhibit excellence in practice.

Heading to Hershey to Join Regulatory Conference

Brian Greene and Eric Wallace will represent our firm at the MACRUC (Mid-Atlantic Conference of Regulatory Utility Commissioners) 19th Annual Education Conference being held June 22-25 in Hershey, PA. We’re also one of the conference sponsors.

GreeneHurlocker’s sponsorship of the conference makes sense because of the increasing partnerships and relationships between the conference attendees and our firm.  Our energy lawyers, who represent electricity, natural gas, and  water companies know that they will see many of the firm’s current clients at the conference as well as people with whom we work on a daily basis.  The conference is the perfect place to build upon current professional relationships and forge new ones.

Among the many sessions taking place over the three day conference, one will include utility regulators and industry leaders in the energy field giving their take on the current financial, regulatory and market environments and the future outlook for their industries. In addition, contemporary concerns such as demand response, smart grid, distributed energy resources and retail competition, along with risk, security and resource management, rate structures, environmental and physical network issues will also be presented.

If you plan to attend, we hope to see you there! Look for us at the breaks and in sessions.
