Energy

Political, economic and environmental factors continue to shape and transform the energy industry. Clients in the traditional and renewable energy markets need a law firm with the practical industry insights and deep experience to help navigate and capitalize on business opportunities.

Our lawyers’ knowledge spans the breadth of the energy sub-sectors and technologies, including wind, solar, thermal power plants, combined heat and power, waste-to-energy facilities, biofuels, landfill gas systems, hydroelectric projects, district energy systems, oil and gas and coal mining.

We advise energy companies, developers, institutional and private equity investors, infrastructure and investment funds across a full range of transactional matters, including acquisitions, divestitures, debt transactions, development and project finance. We also provide counsel on commercial and regulatory issues.

Notable highlights include advising: an energy infrastructure company on its acquisition of five landfill gas-to-energy projects located in the southeastern U.S.; a renewable energy company on its purchase of a 30-megawatt portfolio of development-stage solar projects in the Pacific Northwest; and a France-based global engineering services company on its acquisition of a provider of engineering services to nuclear facilities.

With an understanding of the implications of the real-world challenges affecting this dynamic sector, we work closely with clients to provide world-class legal advice, combining professionalism and innovation to ensure clients achieve their objectives.
