The Legal 500 U.S. 2015

Michael Didriksen is the New York Global Projects Department Chair and Co-Head of New York Transactional Group. Coupling legal ingenuity with business acumen, Michael Didriksen is who clients call when they need to forge new ground. His skill set is why energy clients trust him to structure some the most cutting-edge transactions of the last decade.

A deal lawyer with more than twenty years of experience handling complex M&A and project development, his experience includes all forms of renewable power, conventional power, storage (battery and pumped hydro) and transmission (including large scale HVDC merchant transmission), as well as the alternative and renewable fuels space (RNG, SAF and LFG).

He recently structured a first-of-its-kind agreement for AES to provide around the clock carbon free energy to Google data centers in Virginia, including hourly performance targets for the carbon content of such energy, a key step in assisting Google's previously announced goal of running its business on 100% carbon free energy on an hourly basis by 2030.
