Our Renewable Energy team provides our clients with unmatched wind, solar, biomass, biofuels, geothermal and hydroelectric energy experience. Clients seek our counsel on innumerable transactions ranging from the financing of the world’s largest land-based wind farm and the first offshore wind farms in the world to the development of both photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar plant (CSP) projects.
Our renewable energy expertise draws on multiple practice groups across the globe, with dedicated renewable energy teams based in each of our US offices, as well as in Beijing, Hong Kong, London, São Paulo, Singapore and Tokyo. Together we bring extensive knowledge in all aspects of development, financing, acquisition and disposition of renewable energy projects plus corporate finance, M&A, restructurings and workouts. Our specialists within the US have an in-depth understanding of Production Tax Credits (PTC), Investment Tax Credits (ITC) and other tax incentives available for renewable energy projects and related qualifications and requirements across the country in order to effectively structure tax equity transactions. We routinely represent project developers, sponsors, lenders, investors, and other parties across the whole renewable energy value chain, including the acquisition, divestiture and financing of portfolios of renewable assets.
Evidence of our industry success: our consistent recognition by leading industry publications. We’ve been named “2017 Global Legal Adviser of the Year” by IJGlobal, and “Global Projects & Energy Firm of the Year” by Chambers Global, as well as the “Top Legal Advisor for Clean Energy Project Finance” many years in a row and Chambers “Energy/Projects Award for Excellence” among others.
