I work closely with clients to develop, finance, buy and sell energy and solid waste projects. Much of my practice involves working with senior management on complex projects and financings. I have recently assisted clients in acquiring and financing over two billion dollars’ worth of solar energy projects and in developing large fossil fuel and wind electric generating facilities and electric transmission projects. Clients value my ability to understand and keep sight of the big picture, while getting the details lined up in a way that helps them to achieve their objectives.
