We help our clients in the power industry to navigate myriad legal challenges , including fluctuating market conditions, regulatory uncertainty, governmental investigations and continuous advances in conventional, renewable and clean energy technologies.
Global challenges require global resources
Whether it’s raising adequate capital to fund needed investment in power production and transmission, solving the challenges of cross-border investments, meeting environmental and regulatory requirements or addressing disputes and governmental inquiries, our clients require in-depth knowledge and experience of the power industry. We possess a deep understanding of global and regional business practices and government regulations, as well as proven domestic power experience in the Americas, Asia, Europe, Middle East and Africa. We cover the major areas of law in the regions of the world where our power industry clients currently do business, and the regions in which they are looking to expand.
Powering the power industry
We represent a diverse range of clients, including financial institutions and multilateral lenders, private equity firms, integrated public utilities, conventional and renewable power generators, power marketers, merchant transmission providers, project developers, governments and state owned entities, contractors and service companies and large consumers of power. No matter how complex or challenging the issue is, our clients turn to us for our industry knowledge, proven track record of results and a wide range of power-related legal services.
Changing Energy Markets and Regulation
Over the last few decades the US power industry has undergone a transition from a regulated industry dominated by integrated monopolies to one based upon vertically disaggregated components and competitors. We have pioneered strategies to protect market participants from the vagaries of an unstable market design and have helped our clients navigate the resulting market failures. Our Energy Markets and Regulatory Group assists clients with regulatory issues, energy project financings, energy company or asset sales and acquisitions, workout assessments, restructurings or bankruptcies and bet-the-company litigations. We work hard to find goal-orientated solutions to the challenges that our clients face based on our extensive understanding of how energy markets work.
