Foley Hoag's Energy Technology and Renewables Practice
February 1, 2010
Helping Energy Technology and Renewables Companies Thrive
As the clean energy sector continues to evolve, successful decision makers must rely on counsel to help them anticipate where this dynamic industry is heading and respond quickly to take advantage of the right opportunities. Investors and lenders in clean energy companies and projects need advisers familiar with the potential risks and rewards that such investments can present. At Foley Hoag, we have the knowledge, experience and resources to deliver solutions-oriented advice to entities involved in all aspects of this increasingly important clean energy sector.
At Foley Hoag we know the concerns and priorities of ETR companies, developers of ETR projects and investors which include:
- The wide array of environmental and regulatory issues that can arise in the course of permitting and operating renewable energy projects
- The finance, tax, project structuring, intellectual property, and employment strategies needed to move a company successfully through the start-up, public offering and public company stages
- The potential issues important to maintaining a high standard of corporate social responsibility
In our work with government and quasipublic agencies we provide advice about investing in clean energy projects and technologies. We also counsel government agencies with respect to legislative initiatives to stimulate broader deployment of carbon reducing technologies.
