Ramin Mohammad is an attorney in Nixon Peabody’s Community Development Finance group. He represents sponsors, developers, lenders, private venture capital funds, and companies in a wide array of industries, with a particular focus on tax within renewable power and energy.
I focus my practice on renewable energy projects that generate renewable energy tax credits. I represent clients on tax, project finance, cross border, mergers and acquisitions, dispositions, project finance, and development involving the financing, purchase, and sale of energy and infrastructure projects. I also advise clients with the tax structuring of renewable energy deals, safe harboring of tax credits, and opportunity zones.
As a certified public accountant, I previously served as a senior auditor in the Office of Enforcement at the FERC. During my time at the agency, I led audits related to compliance and enforcement of applicable energy laws. I also created recommendations for remedies to address violations and assisted in pursuing remedies through negotiation or litigation. Before joining the FERC, I worked in the Core Assurance practice of a Big Four accounting firm, where I advised Fortune 500 companies and private equity clients in the United States, Asia, and South America. This experience has allowed me to gain better insight into and appreciate the operations side of major businesses.
I have also taught as an adjunct professor at George Washington University and as an instructor for the Certified Public Accountant exam. I enjoy unpacking difficult concepts and explaining them to get to the more basic fundamentals.
I see the political landscape is becoming more accepting of and, in fact, demanding more growth in renewable energy because of constituent demand for energy alternatives. Energy storage will thus become more necessary and will continue to mature and play an integral role in the development and financing of renewable energy projects. Furthermore, the financing of these renewable projects will continue to expand to include more non-traditional investors in this space.
