In today’s energy market, knowing the laws and regulations is just the beginning. Success also requires knowing the industry’s commercial and regulatory realities, the politics and the people. We do.

Combine real world, practical experience with a savvy sense of energy business, regulatory and political issues. Add to this a voice with the decision makers who are shaping tomorrow’s business and regulatory climate. It’s a powerful combination. We know because it’s how we operate.

Regionally, nationally and internationally, we counsel developers, owners, purchasers and sellers of energy projects, and their lenders on complex initiatives involving traditional and alternative energy sources. Our multidisciplinary approach to these challenges and practical experience set us apart from other law firms. Senior practitioners in energy regulation, transactions, financing, restructuring, government relations, and environmental law work together to generate creative, comprehensive and cost-effective solutions.

Adding fuel to our energy team are those who have served in prominent government positions on the state, regional and local levels and in the energy industry – and they provide crucial access to key stakeholders and decision-makers. Our Capitol Hill advocates extend our reach to Washington, DC, and can help you identify new opportunities in this fast-changing industry.
