Cam Winton's career

Cam is senior counsel at Duke Energy Corporation, where he represents and counsels Duke in its operation of wind and solar farms.

Previously, Cam was the Vice President & General Counsel of Outland Energy Services, LLC. Cam and his colleagues built Outland into a leading provider of operation and maintenance services for wind turbines throughout the United States and overseas.

Duke Energy purchased the business in November 2012. All employees kept their jobs and shared in the benefits of the sale.

Before joining Outland, Cam practiced law at Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi, LLP in Minneapolis.

  • He represented Fortune 100 companies—GE, Best Buy, Honeywell, and UnitedHealth Group—in commercial and intellectual property litigation.
  • While at the firm Cam also represented—on a pro bono basis—a victim of the I-35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis and refugees seeking asylum in the U.S. to escape persecution in their home country.
    • In the bridge case, Cam secured compensation sufficient to pay his client’s past and future medical bills.
    • In the asylum case, Cam and his colleagues secured the right for the family in question—a husband & wife and their two young children—to stay in the U.S. rather than be sent back to face certain persecution and physical injury.
