We are pleased to have reached our firm’s 4-year anniversary this month! We don’t normally make a big to-do about our anniversary – other than a few beers – but we’re especially proud of our growth in lawyers, staff, and number of clients.
The firm has come a long way since Brian Greene and Eric Hurlocker joined forces. We now have seven lawyers and a para-legal, and our work extends throughout Virginia and into Maryland, D.C., Delaware, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and beyond. Here are some things we want to share:
- We have wonderful clients who do really cool things. Our solar clients have installed solar facilities at the University of Richmond, Washington & Lee University, the Albemarle County School System, and throughout the country. We have a solar panel hanging in our lobby, courtesy of one of our clients. Our retail electric and natural gas clients continue to develop new products using innovative technology that impacts energy consumption, and lives, every day. We have represented other energy companies and municipalities that provide services that are fundamentally important to customers. We are truly honored to have such an incredible and growing client base.
- We have awesome lawyers. They are smart and nice and work hard, and they pass the “would I have a beer with that dude?” test. They are on the cutting edge of exciting legal and factual issues involving solar development, retail electricity and natural gas, demand response, water service, and more. We have experienced numerous successes on behalf of our clients the past four years, mainly due to the winning combination of our clients and team we have built here.
- We are proud of the personal relationships we have developed throughout the mid-Atlantic. Just last week our lawyers travelled to Baltimore, MD; Dover, DE; Washington, DC; and Raleigh, NC. We have enjoyed sponsoring the MACRUC conference the past three years and the “Taste of Virginia” cocktail party that generates so much buzz. We have always viewed our energy practice as a “relationship practice” and will continue to build upon what we have accomplished to date.
- It’s only been four years. We think back to the formation of GreeneHurlocker, when we hoped that the combination of Brian’s regulatory practice and Eric’s transactional practice would feed off each other. So far, so good.
So, it’s time to recognize amazing progress! We’ve grown in terms of clients and lawyers, and moved into bigger office space. We’ve noticed that clients that might not have considered hiring us in the past are now hiring us, in part because of our increased bandwith and expertise to handle their cases and deals. What we’re doing as a firm is working, and it’s unbelievably satisfying.
So, a heart-felt “Thank You” to all of you that have supported us during the past four years. Here’s to many, many more!
