    Wilkinson Barker Knauer bolsters energy practice with new partner

    Wilkinson Barker Knauer LLP

    Wilkinson Barker Knauer LLP reports that Susan Bergles has joined the firm as a partner, merging her natural gas regulatory practice with the firm’s growing energy practice. She will practice from the firm’s Washington, DC, office, but will also work closely with attorneys in the firm’s Denver, Colorado, office.

    Bergles will continue to provide regulatory and transactional advice to utilities, pipeline companies, storage companies, and energy marketing companies. Her practice focuses on regulation of the natural gas industry, primarily before federal agencies, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, with respect to natural gas pipeline rate and tariff matters, natural gas contracting, natural gas storage regulatory and contracting matters, and regulatory compliance.

    Bergles has advised clients on natural gas regulatory and contract matters for over 20 years, and has served as chair of the American Gas Association’s FERC Regulatory Committee. Prior to moving to the East Coast in 2000, she was in‐house counsel for Northwest Natural Gas Company (NW Natural) in Portland, Oregon, where she handled state regulatory matters, natural gas sale and purchase agreements, gas transportation and storage agreements, financial derivative contracts, and represented NW Natural in regulatory proceedings before the Oregon Public Utility Commission, the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission, and the FERC.

    Earlier in her career, she was an associate in the law firm of Ater Wynne LLP in Portland and an attorney with Texaco Inc. in Houston, Texas. She earned her law degree from the University of Iowa College of Law, and holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Iowa.
