Regina advises an array of clients reflecting the broad spectrum of energy companies that engage in regulated activities in the U.S. She has spent her career focused on energy issues.  She began her career at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and in 2020, she founded her own firm, SB Law, PLLC, which provides strategic, first-tier legal advice and analysis that assists companies in meeting wide-ranging regulatory obligations while accomplishing business objectives and goals.

Regina represents natural gas companies, local distribution companies, and electric utilities on a variety of matters related to energy administrative and regulatory law. She partners with company compliance officers and business teams to help ensure that all areas of an organization with compliance responsibilities are engaged in compliance daily and are informed during internal or external audits, investigations, and enforcement actions. Her long-term, positive relationship with regulators underlies her firm but cooperative attitude in compliance cases, leading to better overall results for her clients. Her measured outlook has produced successful results and, in some cases, improved regulatory understanding for the entire industry.

A litigator at her core, she applies her deep knowledge of the energy industry and years of litigation training to cases before state courts, as well as before federal and state regulatory bodies, on behalf of clients in multiple jurisdictions. She is a trained negotiator and uses those negotiation skills, when appropriate, to bring about favorable results for her clients.

Regina has spearheaded diversity initiatives throughout the energy bar and industry. She served as the co-chair of the Energy Bar Association President's Ad Hoc Committee on Diversity and actively works to increase diversity, equality, and inclusion throughout the industry and the legal profession generally.
