The primary purpose of the ACC’s Energy Committee is to promote the objectives of the ACC within the field of energy law, provide a forum for exchange of information and ideas relating to energy law among in-house counsel, serve as an educational resource to in-house energy attorneys, and combine the experience of its members to benefit the energy legal community. The committee offers resources such as monthly Legal Quick Hits on hot topics in energy law, Webinars and white papers. Sutherland is the 2010 sponsor of the ACC’s Energy Committee and has provided seven Legal Quick Hits, two Webinars and a FERC InfoPak to its members so far this year.
All attendees are invited to visit with Sutherland’s lawyers in the exhibition hall at booth #435.
