Norman C. Bay
Partner at Wilkkie Farr & Gallagher LLP

Norman was Director of the Office of Enforcement at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) from 2009 to 2014, before becoming a Commissioner and Chairman of the Commission. He has extensive litigation experience, as earlier in his career he spent more than a decade at the U.S. Department of Justice, where he was an Assistant U.S. Attorney and then the U.S. Attorney for the District of New Mexico. Norman is recognized as a thought leader on the energy transition and on electricity and natural gas markets. Chambers USA (2021) ranks him among the leading practitioners nationwide in the area of Energy: Electricity (Regulatory & Litigation). According to Chambers, clients describe Norman as “a tremendously impressive lawyer” with “an academic, in-depth knowledge of the law” and “extremely good judgement,” and highlight that he “knows how FERC thinks about issues.” Norman is also recognized in Best Lawyers for Energy Law, and a leading trade publication previously named him as one of the ten most influential people in energy (“leaders with can-do attitudes”). In 2021, Norman was appointed to serve as a member of the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board, which provides advice and recommendations to the Secretary of the DOE on energy policies and research and development activities.
