FERC chair will join Stoel Rives LLP

Jon Wellinghoff, Chair of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, will join energy law practice Stoel Rives LLP after leaving FERC, the Portland-based firm said.

Wellinghoff submitted his resignation to President Barack Obama in May, though he has agreed to a White House request that he continue serving as chair until a successor can be nominated and confirmed by the Senate.

Controversial nominee Ronald J. Binz looked poised to replace Wellinghoff, but he withdrew from consideration in September following a negative recommendation from the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
