Sophia Browning is an associate with the Energy Group in Crowell & Moring’s Washington, D.C. office. Sophia’s practice focuses primarily on counseling energy companies in both litigation and regulatory matters. Her matters cover a wide variety of issues including contract disputes, project development, and regulatory work before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Sophia worked on energy regulatory matters as a legal intern both at the FERC’s Office of General Counsel and at NextEra Energy’s Office of Federal Regulatory Affairs.

Sophia received her J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center in 2017, where she was actively engaged in the public policy and public interest spaces. Sophia served as an editor for the Georgetown Journal of Law and Public Policy and participated in the Harrison Institute Public Policy Clinic. She received the distinction of Exceptional Pro Bono Pledge Honoree for contributing more than 175 hours of pro bono legal services during her time in law school. Sophia maintains an active pro bono practice, with a focus especially on representing DC “old law” inmates at parole hearings under the U.S. Parole Commission – a topic she has written about for the Georgetown Journal of Law and Public Policy.

Sophia has been named a Fellow with the Center on National Security and the Law at the Georgetown University Law Center for the 2018-2019 academic year in recognition of her work with the National Security Crisis Law Simulation at Georgetown Law.
