Energy Attorney Christopher Skey Rejoins Quarles & Brady in Chicago The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP today announced that Christopher Skey has rejoined the firm’s Energy, Environmental and Natural Resources Practice Group as a partner in its Chicago office.

Skey, who worked at Quarles & Brady from 2012 to 2016, has more than 20 years of experience in energy regulatory matters, as well as project development, compliance, and a range of commercial and administrative litigation, transactional, and government relations matters. Skey’s broad-based energy practice involves the representation of a variety of clients, including public utilities and energy cooperatives; energy suppliers (electric and natural gas); renewable energy developers and asset owners; municipalities; and large commercial, industrial, and governmental energy users, among others. He was recently recognized by Chambers as a leading practitioner in energy regulatory law in Illinois.

“Chris has worked with major competitive energy companies and users, as well as non-energy market participants, on their most complex regulatory, legal, and political developments affecting their interests and projects,” said Paul Langer, Chicago Office Managing Partner. “We are excited for him to return to the firm, where he can continue to increase our profile and influence in connection with traditional and cutting-edge energy issues at the local, state, and national levels.”

In addition to his private practice experience, Skey served as a Judicial Law Clerk to U.S. District Judge Steven D. Merryday, Middle District of Florida (Tampa Division), from 2000 to 2003.

Skey is strongly committed to pro bono work, including a long-time affiliation with Chicago Volunteer Legal Services, where he currently chairs the Advisory Board. His civic involvement includes service on the Board of Directors for Books & Breakfast in Evanston, IL. He received his J.D., cum laude, from Northwestern University School of Law and his B.A. from Northwestern University.
