AG Brad Schimel Announces Appointment of Assistant Deputy Attorney General

MADISON – Attorney General Brad Schimel today announced the appointment of Delanie Breuer to the position of Assistant Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Justice.


Breuer has served as Executive Assistant to Commissioner Ellen Nowak at the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin since 2011, where she provides counsel on legal and policy matters relating to utility regulation cases and commission actions.


Breuer brings broad experience to Schimel’s office, including working as a summer associate with the YKVN Law Firm in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Additionally, she worked as a drilling engineer on a deep-water drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Her experience also includes working as an engineer in the construction of refineries and pipelines.


“I have been very impressed in my interactions with Ms. Breuer,” Attorney General Schimel said. “In particular, few attorneys possess her breadth of education, practical experience and knowledge when it comes to energy law. In coming years, Wisconsin will be involved in more and more energy-related litigation, and Ms. Breuer’s expertise will be invaluable to the DOJ in its representation of the State of Wisconsin in the energy arena and other areas of the law.”


Breuer graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. She earned her J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School, where she attended on a full academic scholarship and graduated with honors.


She sits on a working group for the International Confederation of Energy Regulators and is a member of the Eastern Interconnection States’ Planning Council.


She is expected to begin her duties with DOJ within the next month.
