Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to have represented a variety of clients involved in complex energy and infrastructure transactions in the U.S. and around the world.  Whether I am working on power generation, power transmission, oil refining, natural gas pipeline, water desalinization, chemical manufacturing or other industrial projects, I find it tremendously interesting and gratifying to contribute to new and efficient industrial development – or the redevelopment of existing facilities to increase efficiency and/or mitigate environmental impacts.

I have worked on a wide range of project development and restructuring agreements as well as merger, acquisition, restructuring and joint venture transactions.  Throughout those transactions, my clients have included:

  • renewable energy companies
  • investor-owned utilities
  • private equity firms
  • independent power producers
  • energy management companies
  • oil companies
  • interstate natural gas pipelines
  • power marketers and trading companies, and
  • municipal electric utilities and rural electric cooperatives.
