Energy industry projects are real estate-intensive ventures. With renewable energy projects like utility scale solar and wind farms on the uptick, energy clients need real estate guidance more than ever.
Our real estate attorneys are on the ground, exploring options and delivering creative solutions to our clients—from conventional power plants, pipelines and transmission lines to wind, solar and other renewable energy projects.
We have a long history—and an even bigger future in serving the real estate needs of the energy industry.
Our capabilities run the gamut—from identifying and assembling property through acquisition, leasing, options, easements and rights of way to obtaining access rights for inspection, testing, due diligence, securing all necessary local entitlements, condemnation and negotiation of payment in lieu of tax agreements.
We think ahead and guide you through the complexities of each phase of your project’s development. We address your needs by focusing on the future and providing strategic thought to what we see coming down the pike.
