Fraser Stryker regularly represents clients in the natural gas business, including retail utilities, routinely handling regulatory agency matters and successfully litigating complex rate actions involving tens of millions of dollars.

Fraser Stryker has been general counsel to eastern Nebraska’s largest electric utility since it started its operations in 1945. Because our firm works closely with the management of all phases of this complex enterprise, we have developed a special expertise in the many legal issues that are unique to the utility’s operation.
