Our lawyers have worked extensively negotiating tax credits and governmental grants and loans for capital-intensive projects, having been involved in securing billions of dollars for energy and manufacturing clients under various federal grant and loan programs designed to spur renewable energy projects.
We also represent tax-equity investors, manufacturers, and developers in structuring joint ventures and other transactions to take advantage of federal production tax credits, investment tax credits, accelerated depreciation, carryovers, and other tax measures for numerous renewable energy projects, including solar and wind projects.

We work with clients to structure proposed projects, identify potential credits, grants, and loans, and develop strategies for approaching federal, state and local officials which enable us to negotiate possible packages. We analyze, recommend and structure tax positions in the context of our client’s overall tax and business strategies. This includes structuring equity raises, initial public offerings and financings to best preserve and utilize previously obtained credits and carryover items.
