Susan Bergles , the former in-house counsel for Northwest Natural Gas Company has joined as a partner and merged her natural gas regulatory practice with Wilkinson Barker Knauer’s growing energy practice. She will continue to provide regulatory and transactional advice to pipeline companies, storage companies, and energy marketing companies.
