Hello! My Name Is Maurice.
Hello! My name is Maurice. I’ve been with CU for almost a year and a half. My official title is “Utility Counsel” and I very much enjoy working at City Utilities!
CU: What do you do in your position?
Maurice: In my position, I provide legal advice and support to various departments at CU, represent CU in civil and regulatory matters, and manage outside counsel.
CU: What’s your favorite thing you do?
Maurice: My favorite thing that I do is regulatory matters, specifically energy (electric and gas) regulation. The practice of energy law and regulation, is a unique combination of science, business, and legal. The industry and practice has evolved at a rapid rate and continues with not a visible end in sight. Now and in the future attorneys will play a key role in shaping the future of energy production, transportation, and consumption.
CU: Why do you like working for us?
Maurice: Why do I enjoy working for CU? I’m proud to be a part of an organization that serves the community in which my family lives in. The decisions and the implications of those decisions impact my friends, church, and neighbors every day. I committed my career to public service and to have the opportunity to work for CU is a blessing.
CU: Why should someone want to apply to work in your department?
Maurice: Why should someone apply to work in legal? I think the legal department has progressed into a group of individuals eagerly willing to assist any department in solving a problem or provided legal support to assist in solving that problem. If you’re an individual looking for fast paced, diversified work, and a fun working environment, the legal department would be a perfect fit.
CU: What do you do outside of work for fun?
Maurice: Outside of work, I love spending time with my family. On the weekends, you’ll find me at a Cardinal’s baseball game, a local festival, or at the Farmer’s Park most Saturday mornings.
