Syracuse, New York - June 1, 2013 - Chambers USA America’s Leading Lawyers for Business has ranked Hiscock & Barclay’s Energy practice among the top practices in New York in its 2013 edition. The firm received recognition as a leader in “Energy: State Regulatory & Wholesale Electric Market: New York.”
“This team joins the rankings following extensive client endorsement,” Chambers said in the just-released publication. “The group is recognized for its active [energy] practice before the PSC and other state agencies, representing generators, distributors and developers in a range of regulatory matters.”
