Overview

HENRIK'S PRACTICE FOCUSES ON ASSISTING CLIENTS IN ALL TYPES OF ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS AT THE STATE AND FEDERAL ADMINISTRATIVE LEVEL.

Henrik’s expertise helps clients with contested case proceedings, federal compliance review, investment decisions, contractual disputes, and interconnection litigation. He has represented major public utilities in rate case proceedings in Washington, Oregon, and Wyoming, and assisted those same clients in other contested case matters in California, Idaho, Alaska, and Utah. Henrik has also advises clients on the federal implications of transmission expansion, reliability programs, and dam removals. He makes sure that all his work is done efficiently and professionally, and enjoys the detail and nuance that energy regulatory matters require at all stages of the administrative process.
