Husch Blackwell is pleased to announce Marianne Carroll has rejoined the firm as Senior Counsel. She will once again enhance the firm’s Energy & Natural Resources industry team, primarily advising clients on electricity regulation matters.

Carroll is highly regarded for her industry work. Former Texas Competitive Power Advocates (TCPA) President Barbara Clemenhagen has said that Carroll “made numerous contributions towards the advancement of the competitive electricity market in Texas and has been one of the pioneers in making ERCOT the best market in the country.” In 2011, Carroll received the Gulf Coast Power Association’s Power Star Award for making significant contributions to the advancement of competitive energy markets. In 2013, she received the Ernest E. Smith Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by the Texas Journal of Oil, Gas, and Energy Law, recognizing her as a “distinguished attorney who has made significant contributions to the oil, gas and energy industry.”

Carroll previously served as a Husch Blackwell partner until December 2013, and practiced with predecessor firm Brown McCarroll LLP for several years prior to its combination with Husch Blackwell in June 2013. She brings more than 30 years’ experience representing clients in the electric power industry, providing regulatory and legislative counsel, and has been actively involved in numerous rule-making proceedings and contested cases before the PUCT and ERCOT on behalf of the independent power industry.

“We are thrilled to have Marianne returning to the firm,” said Steve Carman, leader of Husch Blackwell’s Energy & Natural Resources team. “Stakeholders within the energy industry, particularly those within the Texas electricity sector, know Marianne to be deeply knowledgeable on the most pertinent of industry issues, and she is actively sought after for her advice and counsel. We know she will be a great asset to our team and invaluable to our clients.”

Carroll received her J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law (1981), and her B.A., summa cum laude, from the University of Texas at Austin (1968).
