“Mark’s experience will be a tremendous asset to our clients in the energy space,” said William Massey, chair of Covington’s energy practice. “He is well-known in the energy regulatory bar and has represented some of the country’s largest energy market participants and utilities in their most complicated legal matters.”

Mr. Perlis is presently focused on the intersection of federal and state regulation of carbon emissions from the power sector.

“Covington offers a wonderful platform for my practice,” Mr. Perlis said. “I look forward to working with my new energy and environmental colleagues to help clients solve their most pressing regulatory, compliance and enforcement matters.”

Mr. Perlis received a bachelor’s degree from Yale University and a law degree from Harvard Law School. He served as a clerk for Francis L. Van Dusen of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
