Minneapolis-based Bergan deepens transactional bench

News Releases

National law firm Husch Blackwell is pleased to announce that partner Sara Bergan has joined the firm’s Minneapolis office.

Bergan’s joinder continues the Energy & Natural Resources industry team’s growth, which has added partners Kevin Johnson and Richard Bonnifield earlier this year.

Bergan represents developers through the development, procurement, and construction phases of renewable energy projects with a focus on energy transactions, particularly acquisitions, and divestitures. She enjoys where the acquisition and construction components of energy projects come together in build-transfer transactions, as well as other projects with complex construction or regulatory aspects. She is experienced with both large utility-scale wind, solar, and energy storage projects as well as community-scale solar and solar plus storage projects in various jurisdictions.

Bergan has long been active in the broader renewable energy community, having been the executive director of the Great Plains Institute for years prior to pursuing a legal career.

“I’m delighted to join Husch Blackwell and help grow the Energy team’s transactional bench,” Bergan said. “I have been impressed by the firm’s business-minded approach to running the firm and improving client services and was excited to hear of its plans to launch a Minneapolis office. That coupled with Husch Blackwell’s national platform and breadth of complementary energy, real estate, permitting and regulatory experience particularly in the MISO, SPP, and ERCOT markets really attracted me here.”
