Members of our Energy Industry team have significant experience in structuring project financing and raising capital in the credit and capital markets for energy companies involved throughout the energy value chain. We have helped clients raise billions of dollars for the development, construction and acquisition of energy assets, including financing structured as non-recourse and limited recourse project or acquisition debt, corporate debt, and equity financings. The types of transactions in which our attorneys have been involved are extensive, but have included secured and unsecured revolving and term loan facilities, synthetic and leveraged leases, tax abatement and pollution control bonds, and the private placement and public offering of equity and debt securities.
We are intimately familiar with the credit structures commonly used to support project-based financing of energy assets, including power and commodity tolling agreements, off-take obligations, subordinated debt, and the pledge of project contracts and assets. Our lawyers are also well-versed in the wide array of commodity, power, credit, weather and financial hedges, swaps, and other derivatives.
