Suedeen Kelly, a former commissioner with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in both the Bush and Obama administrations, has joined Patton Boggs’s Washington office where she will co-chair the firm’s energy industry practice.

Kelly has extensive experience in the federal government as well as in the electric and natural gas industries. She served six years with the FERC, and in that role she was responsible for the oversight and regulation of the nation’s electricity and natural gas wholesale markets and interstate transmission systems.

Patton Boggs Managing Partner Stuart M. Pape commented on the move in a press release.


“The addition of Suedeen Kelly is a clear signal that we are strategically expanding our energy practice,” said Stuart M. Pape, managing partner of the firm. “She is a dynamic leader in the energy sector and a major draw for clients given her wealth of expertise in the private and public sectors.”

Prior to joining the FERC through a nomination from President George W. Bush, Kelly represented independent generators, water and gas utilities and companies doing business with utilities and mining companies.

“This is an exciting move,” Kelly said. “Patton Boggs is a highly acclaimed leader in every area of law that will be part of my practice — policy and regulatory, business, litigation and intellectual property.  I am proud to be joining this superb organization.
