Practice Areas // Municipal Law

Administrative and regulatory law involves the activities of government agencies and regulated entities in such essential areas as utility regulation and ratemaking, the oil and gas industry, telecommunications, and property taxation on critical infrastructure.  BBC has successfully litigated many matters before state and federal agencies and courts involving millions if not billions of dollars at stake. We have represented national and local companies, utilities, and municipalities in resolving disputes at the heart of Alaska’s economy.  BBC founder Robin Brena has been named one of Alaska’s “Super Lawyers” in the areas of oil and gas, public utilities, and business litigation.  Our firm’s experience and ability to compete and succeed at the highest level is demonstrated by the examples below.
