Broad Range of expertise
Our expertise in power and energy spans across industry sectors and includes all types of facilities – including gas, coal, and nuclear power. We also have one of the world’s most prominent alternative and renewable energy practices, which includes expertise in wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, hydroelectric and other technologies which continue to evolve. We are a leader in the development of independent transmission companies and stand-alone transmission projects as well. Regardless of the kind of power and energy project being developed, financed, restructured, acquired or sold, we bring to the table a robust combination of corporate transaction experience, global expertise and market understanding that is unique in the world.
Global integrated approach
Our multi-disciplinary Power and Energy Group offers a combination of transaction experience and specialized regulatory skills. Our team comprises over 100 lawyers, combining deep experience in project development and finance, private equity, leveraged finance, power generation and energy restructurings, mergers and acquisitions, structured commodity trading and hedging, greenfield development and regulatory matters. In addition, we provide counsel on related tax and litigation matters. Our integrated approach provides clients access to worldwide reach and capability with offices in the world’s major financial centers.
energy-related restructurings, bankruptcies and asset dispositions
As the power and energy sector is dynamic and multi-faceted, our expertise is not limited to new project development. We regularly support our clients in connection with energy-related restructurings, bankruptcies and asset dispositions. We have served as counsel to participants in many of the major industry restructurings and have played a major role in every significant bankruptcy or reorganization of an investor-owned utility in the US since the Great Depression. We routinely counsel distressed public utilities on restructuring and reorganization strategies to avoid bankruptcy, and we are very familiar with the special regulatory, accounting and commercial issues relevant to power generation/energy insolvencies.
