Law firm Troutman Sanders boosts energy industry practice with new office, additional partners

International law firm Troutman Sanders announced plans to expand its energy sector practice with the opening of an office in Portland, Ore. The firm announced the addition of three new partners who will work at the new location.

Troutman Sanders, a law firm with 680 attorneys, plans to open the office in April in downtown Portland. The office will be the firm’s 16th and marks the latest in a string of strategic expansions by the firm.

Troutman Sanders counsels numerous U.S. electric and natural gas utilities on every facet of state, federal and international energy laws and regulations, as well as on all aspects of industry operations, financing, contracting and other issues, the firm reported.

The Portland office will be led by Lara L. Skidmore, a Troutman Sanders partner who will become the office’s first managing partner. She will be joined by two additional partners, Matthew D. McVee and Antoine P. Cobb.

The office will focus initially on assisting electric and natural gas utilities. All three partners have considerable experience in utility and regulatory-related matters; McVee currently is general counsel for the Western Electricity Coordinating Council and Cobb was manager of federal regulation for Arizona Public Service Company, the firm reported.

Troutman Sanders’ energy practice has served clients in the energy business since the 1920s, with a number of energy practitioners in each of the firm’s offices in Washington, D.C., New York, Atlanta and Richmond, Va.
