Electric association selects Pemberton Law for legal counsel [UPDATED]Published 10:04am Monday, June 3, 2013 Updated 12:06pm Monday, June 3, 2013
The Minnesota Rural Electric Association (MREA) named Pemberton as its new legal counsel.
MREA’s prior legal counsel, Hap LeVander, is slated to retire in June, thus the search for new representation. MREA named Pemberton after a competitive selection process which included proposals from numerous firms from the Twin Cities.
Pemberton’s representation of MREA will utilize a team approach with three primary attorneys: Kent D. Mattson of Pemberton’s Fergus Falls office, Daniel T. Carlisle of Pemberton’s Wadena office, and Paul R. Johnson of Pemberton’s Alexandria office.
All three attorneys have significant legal experience in representing rural electric cooperatives, including Runestone, Crow Wing Power, Lake Region, Todd-Wadena and Itasca-Mantrap.
“We are honored and excited to be representing MREA and assisting them with their legal needs,” said Dan Carlisle, who will serve as lead counsel to MREA.
