Successful completion of energy, infrastructure and transmission projects requires diverse and experienced legal talent. Whether working on behalf of utilities or energy producers, Brownstein employs a creative, problem-solving approach that helps clear regulatory and funding hurdles before they delay a project.
Our group includes attorneys with national and international experience in state and federal funding, real estate transactions (including eminent domain, environmental review and permitting at the federal, state and local levels), public and project finance, project design and management and utility contracting. We also have a strong background with public-private partnerships and a long history of helping government and the private sector collaborate on projects.
