Terri Lyndall is a partner in the firm. Her practice focuses on regulated utilities and governmental relations. Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Lyndall was law clerk to the Honorable Don A. Langham in Fulton Superior Court, a Staff attorney with the Consumers’ Utility Counsel and Executive Secretary of the Georgia Public Service Commission (“PSC”). During her clerkship with Judge Langham, Ms. Lyndall assisted in the preparation of the final order in the Georgia Power Company Plant Vogtle appeal from the Georgia Public Service Commission. In 1990, she began working in the energy field as a staff attorney with the Office of Consumers’ Utility Counsel. She regularly appeared before the PSC on behalf of residential and small commercial consumers in numerous administrative hearings. Her primary responsibilities involved representation of consumer/small business interests in rate cases filed by Atlanta Gas Light Company and Georgia Power Company. She was also involved with other regulatory issues such as integrated resource planning. She has argued before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in Washington, D.C.
In 1993, Ms. Lyndall became the Executive Secretary of the Georgia Public Service Commission. In that position, she assisted the Commissioners with individual projects and provided legal counsel to the Commissioners when necessary.
After entering private practice, Ms. Lyndall’s practice initially focused on the deregulated natural gas market. This work followed Georgia’s deregulation of natural gas pursuant to the Natural Gas Competition and Deregulation Act (“the Georgia Act”). She represented clients in numerous rulemakings implementing the Georgia Act before the PSC, and she assisted in drafting and shepherding revisions to the Georgia Act through the General Assembly.
She was appointed to the Georgia Supreme Court’s Blue Ribbon Commission on the Judiciary and the Georgia Supreme Court’s Commission on Children, Marriage and Family Law. She has also been named a Super Lawyer by Atlanta Magazine in 2009.
