Entering his 37th year of law practice, Alan Holman chairs Locke Lord’s Administrative & Regulatory Practice Group and is the firm’s senior administrative and regulatory attorney. Mr. Holman practices public utility, energy, telecommunications, environmental, and general administrative law. He is one of a select few Texas regulatory practitioners who has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America for 20 consecutive years. In the electric utilities area, he represents the third largest retail electric provider in Texas, as well as industrial corporations, cooperative and municipal utilities, and owners, operators, and developers of energy projects on a broad range of project development, ratemaking, rulemaking, certification, regulatory compliance, and transactional matters, including mergers and acquisitions. In the area of gas utility regulation, he has served as outside regulatory counsel to the nation’s largest gas-only local distribution company (“LDC”) and to Texas’ third largest LDC. In the area of telecommunications, he served as Texas regulatory counsel to the nation’s second largest interexchange carrier, as well as its local service affiliate, on regulatory, arbitration, and related litigation and business matters. He also represents real estate developers, large land owners, and public and private water and sewer utilities.
Mr. Holman represents these varied interests before the Public Utility Commission of Texas, the Railroad Commission of Texas, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and in the trial and appellate courts, both state and federal. Mr. Holman’s administrative experience includes environmental law as well as public utility regulation and competition. His practice also extends to the legislative arena, including lobbying at the state and local levels.
Before entering private practice, Mr. Holman was legal counsel to the Texas Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Affairs (1975-77), which played a pivotal role in creating the Texas PUC in 1975 and overseeing that agency’s early operations. From 1977 until 1981, he served as a senior administrative law judge and Assistant Director of the PUC’s Hearings Division.
