James K. McGee became an attorney with Alexander & Cleaver in June 2005, after serving as a
law clerk with the firm for the previous two years. Jim's practice concentrates on the Maryland
Public Service Commission on behalf of numerous state regulatory clients. His practice includes
representation of clients before other state agencies, including the Maryland Department of the
Environment, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and many others.
Jim was 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 those who are owners of power
plants or plan to build or acquire fossil-fueled or renewable generation facilities in the state.
Jim assists clients in obtaining proper licensing/certification, tariff revisions and asset transfers.
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 successfully represented ODEC in obtaining a CPCN from
the Maryland PSC to build a 1,000 MW power plant in northern Maryland.
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 Annapolis and Anne Arundel
County Chamber of Commerce.
