PUF's Steve Mitnick: Where were you six months ago?
Jane Lewis-Raymond: Today is the six-month anniversary of the closing of Duke Energy's acquisition of Piedmont Natural Gas. My last title at Piedmont was Chief Legal Officer, so serving as the chief general counsel, I had the very distinct pleasure of structuring the acquisition of Piedmont by Duke.
I worked with incredibly talented outside counsel to help structure and negotiate the deal and the entire process that led up to the deal.
PUF's Steve Mitnick: Chief Legal Officer, Chief General Counsel of Piedmont Gas. That must not have been an easy job.
