Bryan A. Brandenburg

Associate

Bryan A. Brandenburg is an Associate in the Environment, Energy & Natural Resources Practice Group in Clark Hill’s Lansing, MI office. Bryan concentrates his practice on energy related litigation, policy, corporate transactions, and administrative law. 

Prior to joining Clark Hill, Bryan spent four years as an Assistant Attorney General representing the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC). During his tenure as an Assistant Attorney General, Bryan litigated complex utility rate cases and served as the Commission's lead attorney for all telecommunication and pipeline matters. Bryan was also tapped to defend the Chairman of the Michigan House Energy Committee and the Director of the Michigan Agency for Energy (MAE) when they were sued in federal court. Having had these significant opportunities to represent governmental departments and regulatory officials, Bryan is well-versed on regulatory policy and process from the inside out. Bryan has served as president of a real estate investment firm, chief of staff for a Michigan legislator, and, most recently, an Assistant Attorney General.

Today, Bryan leverages this knowledge as he represents the interests of large energy users before state commissions and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). In addition to practicing energy and telecom law, Bryan advises business leaders, engineers, economic forecasters, and project managers on issues regarding regulatory compliance and government policy. A zealous advocate of the free market, Bryan understands the importance of market competition (electric choice), the promotion of self-generation/co-generation and effective regulatory cost control.
