Lee Ewing brings a diverse practice within energy and utility regulation on matters before both state utility commissions and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Lee‘s background includes wholesale market-based rate filings with the FERC, energy and solar tax-equity transactions, the sale of FERC-jurisdictional assets, and energy market structure issues. His federal practice also includes work on cost-of-service rate cases of both electric transmission utilities and natural gas pipeline companies. In addition, Lee has experience advocating on behalf of clients in rate proceedings before the New York Public Service Commission and the Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia.

Lee's previous experience includes serving as a staff attorney for the Maine Public Utilities Commission (MPUC), where he participated in several complex matters concerning electric and natural gas utilities, including rate cases and certifications of public convenience and necessity. He also acted as the lead attorney for the MPUC on proceedings involving renewable energy incentives and policies, long-term contracts between generators and Maine’s electric utilities, and several cases stemming from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. In addition, Lee represented the MPUC on appeals of its decisions before the Maine Supreme Judicial Court.

Prior to joining the MPUC, Lee was a law clerk with the Maryland Circuit Court.
