He also advises clients on corporate transactions and governance matters.
He joins DLA Piper from Day Pitney, having also served as general counsel and vice-president at Trans Bay Cable and vice-president of its parent company SteelRiver Transmission Company.
Hornstein began his energy law career with FERC, where he worked alongside DLA Piper’s Lee Alexander and served as legal adviser to two FERC chairmen, providing policy and legal guidance on all issues affecting the electric utility industry.
