Andres Medrano has extensive experience with complex litigation in all phases, including discovery, analysis and presentation of expert witness testimony and the research and briefing of legal issues. In addition to his experience in proceedings before Texas regulatory agencies and the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH), Andres has litigated in district courts across central Texas and before the Court of Appeals. These are often complex, aggressively contested, multi-party cases.

Andres represents clients with issues involving regulatory law and administrative litigation, including extensive experience practicing before the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUC). His clients in PUC proceedings include retail electric providers, renewable generators, utility affiliates and landowners impacted by transmission infrastructure. Andres also litigates contested cases before regulatory agencies including the PUC, the SOAH and at the appellate courts, and provides policy development consultation and regulatory compliance counsel.

Andres regularly monitors meetings of the PUC, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) and the Texas Legislature to ensure that his energy clients are represented and informed on all relevant regulations. He is actively expanding his practice to include the litigation of water district and utility matters before the PUC, and in representing clients in healthcare and other fields in matters requiring administrative litigation at SOAH.

Prior to joining Gardere, Andres served as an attorney and senior attorney for the commission staff of the PUC in the Legal Division. He was with the PUC from 2007 to 2010. Prior to working at the PUC, Andres had his own private litigation practice from 2002 to 2007.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
