Glen S. Bernstein is a partner in Morgan Lewis's Energy Practice. Mr. Bernstein represents clients in all aspects of electric utility regulation and deregulation, with an emphasis on transmission and interconnection access, rates, and planning; independent transmission providers; electricity markets; and compliance with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Standards of Conduct and Codes of Conduct, affiliate transaction rules, and antimarket manipulation rules.

Mr. Bernstein has served as a trial lawyer in complex FERC and state litigation, argued in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, defended companies in enforcement actions, and assisted numerous clients in establishing structures for transactions that satisfy FERC and other regulatory requirements. He has represented electric utilities, independent power producers, and a power pool in establishing a number of independent system operators (ISOs), regional transmission organizations (RTOs), and other independent transmission entities in the Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast, and in ongoing matters under those organizations.

Mr. Bernstein has also advised clients on the development of various market mechanisms for energy transactions. He is often involved in developing new structures for clients, including the first individual utility to provide independent oversight over transmission services and the first individual utility to obtain "participant funding" for transmission services.

Prior to joining Morgan Lewis, Mr. Bernstein was a partner in the Washington, D.C. office of an international law firm, where he focused his practice on energy and electricity regulation.

Mr. Bernstein earned his J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1992 and his B.S. from Vanderbilt University in 1989.

Mr. Bernstein is admitted to practice in the District of Columbia.
