Public Power & Electric Cooperatives

Understanding the unique perspectives of public power entities and electric cooperatives, we focus on helping achieve their specific energy business objectives.

Our Approach

As an integral part of the billion-dollar U.S. electric utility industry, public power and electric cooperatives play a critical role in our nation’s economy and in our local communities. Their executives need access to investors and lenders to implement strategic alternatives for serving load growth, this decade and beyond.

Using our critical knowledge of trends and potential roadblocks, our team provides trusted legal advice to help with:

  • Developing and acquiring interest in generation projects (coal and gas)
  • Environmental permitting
  • Financing system electric needs
  • Structuring and obtaining ownership interests in multi-party, large-scale generation and transmission projects

Our strategic thinking and integrated approach combines business, construction, public finance, tax, environmental and regulatory experience in a nationally recognized practice.

We understand the industry. We see the complex issues facing public power today and tomorrow. And we provide our clients with answers to their questions and solutions to their problems.
