We have a long history of successfully managing energy projects and financings, particularly involving renewable fuel sources such as onshore and offshore wind, solar, hydro, geothermal, biomass, ethanol, and biodiesel. Our services to the renewable energy market are comprehensive and include permitting, community relations, land rights, equipment procurement, construction, finance, power purchase arrangements, interconnection and project acquisitions, mergers, securities offerings, compliance issues, litigation, joint ventures, and divestitures. We are one of the most experienced law firms in structuring transactions to best utilize the federal production tax credit, the investment tax credit, and the grant in lieu of investment tax credit ― the Section 1603 grant.
In addition to renewables, Foley has a rich history in successfully addressing the litigation and transactional needs of our clients in the oil and gas business, including independents, public companies and individual mineral owners. We handle issues concerning leasehold operations, royalty and title disputes, farmouts, right-of-ways and gas purchase agreements. Our oil and gas attorneys represent service companies, drilling contractors, pipelines, and exploration and production companies. We handle issues including patent and trademark protection, production financing and eCommerce to ensure the business transaction proceeds smoothly, or if litigation is involved, that the matter is handled successfully, economically and efficiently.
