James K. McGee is a senior litigation attorney, having been a lawyer with Alexander & Cleaver for over
a dozen years. Jim's practice concentrates on representation before the Maryland Public Service
Commission on behalf of numerous state regulatory clients. His practice includes representation of
clients before many state agencies and boards, including the Maryland Department of the Environment.
Jim has been engaged to represent clients in most major PSC proceedings in a wide range of matters
for our clients on energy, telecommunications, electricity, gas, wholesale, retail, compliance and
regulatory issues. He is the "eyes and ears" for clients, including electric/gas suppliers, power plant
owners, and developers planning to build or acquire fossil-fueled or renewable generation facilities,
including solar and wind. Jim successfully represented ODEC in obtaining a CPCN from the
Maryland PSC to build a 1,000 MW power plant in northern Maryland, and Bluegrass Solar in an 80 MW solar plant in Queen Anne's County.
Jim assists clients in obtaining proper licensing/certification, tariff revisions and asset transfers, and
prepares/reviews contracts. He successfully argued on behalf of electricity suppliers in complaints against public service companies involving complex calculations of energy transactions that resulted in significant credits for our clients. In addition, Jim has represented clients in several major utility merger proceedings before the Commission.
In addition to his energy and utility practice, Jim also represents and advises clients with landlord-tenant,
domestic and other transactional or civil litigation issues.
He represents the firm at events for the Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce. Jim is an avid sports fan, including his beloved Terps, and lives in Edgewater with his wife and three daughters.
