Global energy demands are rapidly increasing. At the same time, national and international energy policies are becoming more complex, as federal, state and local government diverge on the best ways to meet these demands. In this challenging environment, industry participants need rational, focused legal guidance to help them seize market opportunities, take advantage of more efficient technologies, protect brands and revenues, and minimize exposure to regulatory enforcement.

Our integrated, multidisciplinary energy team advises on every facet of the energy landscape—from project finance and development, to the acquisition and disposition of power and renewables. We work with our clients to structure transactions to take advantage of the full benefit of tax credits on renewable energy projects, and can help navigate environmental permitting and regulatory constraints. Our team is well-versed in traditional project finance, as well as innovative public-private partnerships (P3) financing for energy, transportation, telecommunications or infrastructure projects. In addition, we are actively involved in regulatory and legislative advocacy on Capitol Hill on behalf of our clients and their interests.

We work closely with our clients to ensure that our legal guidance is in sync with—and helps achieve—broader, long-term strategic business goals. Our clients include sponsors, lenders, investors, government enterprises and other project participants operating in virtually every segment of the industry, including traditional oil, gas, LNG, coal and nuclear power, and companies involved in developing, marketing and distributing energy derived from emerging and renewable sources such as wind, solar, hydro and biomass. We also represent clients focused on industry financials, including international and multilateral financial institutions, tax-equity investors, private sponsors and developers, and private equity investors, as well as governments and public-procurement entities.
