Our electricity clients keep coming back to us because of the industry experience and creativity that we consistently bring to help achieve their business objectives. Locke Lord lawyers have worked with generation assets of virtually every size, fuel type and geographic region. Domestically, we have represented acquirers, developers and sellers of coal, gas, wind and biomass generation assets in every Regional Transmission Organization (RTO). We have extensive depth internationally as well, including in most of the active Latin American markets, China, Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia.
While the development of traditional generation assets have lessened in recent years, we have been extremely active in the development of renewable energy projects. As those assets have begun to change hands, we have been actively involved in representing the buyers and sellers of renewable energy projects as well.
Locke Lord’s energy regulatory team regularly represents electric utility companies, independent power producers and merchant generators, electric power marketers, investment and private equity funds and wholesale and retail customers in regulatory compliance matters pertaining to the electric energy industry both at the federal and state levels.
