Public utilities engaged or proposing to engage in utility business in the state are strictly regulated by the Regulatory Commission of Alaska. Practice in front of the Commission is a highly specialized area of law, with unique rules of procedure and evidence. Dillon Findley & Simonian, P.C.'s lawyers have a depth of knowledge and experience in this area. We work closely with our clients on all matters in front of the RCA, including applications to provide service, the acquisition of existing utilities, terms of service, joint use disputes, and rate proceedings. We represent natural gas, telecommunications, electric, water, sewer and refuse utilities.

With the firm’s extensive litigation experience, we provide representation to utilities in civil litigation matters, construction matters, and on appeals from Commission decisions.
