Energy Project Finance & Development

Our lawyers have structured ground-breaking renewable energy deals

Energy project financing transactions are as complex as any deals of comparable size in the business world. We work with our clients to develop and finance successful projects requiring significant legal expertise combined with a thorough understanding of the industry, including market dynamics, tax structures, regulatory environments, and investor and lender sensitivities.

Our Energy Project Finance practice consists of a cross-disciplinary team working across project contracts, finance, development, tax, regulatory, real estate, and policy matters. Our attorneys serve as experienced counsel to developers, sponsors, investors, lenders, contractors and customers through all stages of energy project development, origination, financing, procurement, construction and operation. 

We focus on innovative and emerging business models, policies and markets for renewable generation and energy storage. We assist project owners in identifying sources of financing on both the debt and equity sides. We also help create new sources of financing to take advantage of tax and other benefits resulting from public-private partnerships.
