Because we know the industries in which our clients operate, we understand the distinct issues and concerns of each of the parties involved and how decisions along the way can have a unique impact. We navigate all of the individual perspectives, approvals, needs and requirements to reach agreement on all issues and complete the transaction.
The large, often complex projects we work on bring together multiple entities that operate under different regulatory requirements, access capital from different sources, often have different goals and answer to ownership or management teams with distinct strategic priorities. The complexity of the deals requires a legal team with experience and agility.
We draw on Nixon Peabody’s diverse pool of talent and resources in environmental, real estate, investment and tax law to craft broadly reasoned strategies. This interdisciplinary capability is often a powerful asset for clients attempting to master complex infrastructure problems in a demanding legal environment.
In the energy sector, our lawyers have structured auctions of energy-generating facilities and helped clients acquire and dispose of energy and infrastructure assets, both in the U.S. and abroad. We represent project developers, electric and gas utilities and other energy enterprises before federal and state regulatory bodies in all phases of the regulatory process. In the area of economic development, we have worked on sports and entertainment venues, water facilities, hotels and convention centers, paper and pulp mills, transportation hubs and toll roads.
