Ronald W. Bloomberg is experienced in all matters of administrative law; business and corporate law; and energy, telecommunications and public utility law.
He also has an extensive background in utility rate regulation, certificates of public convenience and necessity, siting, licensing, franchises, prudence reviews, contract negotiation and drafting.
In public utility litigation, opposing parties often retain “expert” witnesses from across the country to review and, on occasion, attack the reasonableness of our clients’ decisions.
In a recent case Ron handled, the evidence and argument presented in rebuttal led to the rejection of such expert witness’s opinion and proposed million-dollar cost disallowance. The Michigan Public Service Commission concluded not only that the utility’s challenged actions were reasonable and prudent but also found that the opposing expert’s recommended action would have been “unreasonable and imprudent.”
