$10 Million Granted to Aquarion Water
Attorneys Secure Approval For Client
Following passage of a new law granting rate recognition for water companies that acquire small troubled water systems, our Regulatory team represented Aquarion in obtaining an award of $10 million for its acquisition and modernization of more than 50 such water systems. After the Office of Consumer Counsel challenged the regulator’s action in court, Pullman & Comley secured a remand back to the regulators to review their decision. On remand, our lawyers were able to secure full recovery of the entire amount previously granted by the regulators for our long-standing client. Pullman & Comley represents Aquarion Water Company in a variety of areas, including matters involving rates and regulation, and also provides legal support for such major transactions as mergers and acquisitions.
