Tom Anson’s regulatory and administrative law practice spans well over three decades. He studied regulated industries and energy law in law school, and upon graduation clerked for Judge Sam Johnson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit (who served on the “Gas Panel” which reviews decisions of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission).
Tom’s primary area of practice is state and federal energy and utility law. This involves regulatory, contract, financial, administrative, and litigation matters for the electric, oil and gas, and other infrastruture industries, including matters before the Public Utility Commission of Texas, the Railroad Commission of Texas, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and the courts. His practice also involves other areas of administrative and governmental law, including assistance on contracts for the procurement of certain goods and services by governmental bodies, such as by municipal entities.
Representative energy and utility clients include independent power producers, wind generators, electric transmission service providers, electric power aggregation, gas and other pipeline companies, municipally-owned gas and electric utilities, rural electric cooperatives, industrial customers, commercial businesses, and lenders or investors in the energy and utility industries.
