The article focuses on the rise of a small group of lawyers and law firms in the U.S. that provide services related to the licensing of nuclear reactors. Industry lawyers expect to see more than 30 applications for new reactors and plants filed with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in the next few years. And those filings do not happen without significant legal maneuvering, which translates into hefty fees for the handful of well-placed law firms with established nuclear energy practices.
