The intersection of environmental and energy issues also allows our practice groups to represent clients in all aspects of developing and siting natural gas and renewable energy projects, including solar, wind and hydroelectric power.  We collaborate to assist energy project developers with land use, siting, contracts, real estate, environmental and tax issues related to facility construction, operation, transmission and energy storage. Our attorneys also assist clients in complying with greenhouse gas regulations and in developing carbon emission offsets projects.
