Global law firm White & Case LLP is expanding its Global Project Development and Finance Practice with the addition of Serena A. Rwejuna as a partner in Washington, DC.
"Serena is an excellent addition to our global team," said Mark Castillo-Bernaus, Global Head of White & Case's Project Development and Finance Practice. "As energy companies around the world are focused on energy transition, we are expanding our depth in this sector, including building our resources in the renewable energy sector. Serena brings the ideal skills to serve our clients’ complex energy regulatory needs in the US and around the world."
Rwejuna's practice focuses on advising energy companies on a range of regulatory issues. She also has experience with a variety of clean energy technologies, including solar, wind, hydro and waste-to-energy. She counsels utilities, generators, pipelines, natural gas distribution companies and other energy industry participants on compliance with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulations, and advises them on project development, mergers and acquisitions, and administrative litigation and dispute resolution, and state regulatory compliance.
She also has experience working with regulatory agencies such as the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), state public utility commissions (PUCs), and Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs). Serena regularly counsels clients in high-stakes non-public and public audits, inquiries, investigations, and enforcement proceedings before these regulatory agencies.
"The arrival of Serena immediately strengthens and bolsters the leadership of our energy markets and regulatory team in the Americas," said Nandan Nelivigi, Regional Section Head of the Firm's Americas Project Development and Finance Practice. "Adding a highly skilled lawyer such as Serena further enhances our ability to provide our clients with the highest level of expertise."
