Project Finance and Infrastructure

Energy projects often involve complex, highly structured, limited-recourse financings or comprehensive restructurings. Our attorneys represent lenders, developers, investors, and other parties in limited-recourse financings at various stages of the development or acquisition of fossil fuel, hydroelectric, wind, solar, biomass and waste-to-energy projects, including cogeneration facilities and the repowering or expansion of existing projects. We also have represented investors, owners, underwriters, and other parties within the energy industry in breakthrough asset securitizations, corporate finance transactions, tax-exempt bond financings, various equipment and facility lease transactions, bankruptcies, and financial restructurings. We have particular experience with structured tax equity financings for renewable energy projects involving production tax credits, investment tax credits, and U.S. Department of the Treasury (U.S. Treasury) grant programs. Our attorneys also are active in financing power plants for tax-exempt municipal utilities, utilizing pre-pay power purchase agreements and related bond financings.
