Our leadership in financing infrastructure projects throughout the U.S. links back to our work on the earliest utility projects that paved the way for the region’s modern-day economic strength. Today, we are nationally recognized for work on traditional and renewable energy projects, including solar power, wind power, pipelines, hydropower, natural gas plants, renewable gas facilities, transmission lines and bioenergy projects. We have led the development and financing of nearly one-quarter of wind energy production in the U.S.
We represent developers, equity investors, tax equity investors, investment banks, commercial banks and other financial institutions on project financings throughout the U.S. This involves identifying sources of financing, negotiating various transaction documents, creating complex legal structures that protect sponsor assets and liabilities, identifying and mitigating risks associated with the project, and handling specific business and industry nuances that are key considerations in getting your deal done.
