“All of us at Swift Current Energy would not be where we are without Anna Kimbrell’s keen advice and steady counsel. And we’re excited for what’s still yet to come!”

Will Havemeyer, Co-Founder | Partner | Chief Legal Officer, Swift Current Energy

Overview

From start to finish, Anna guides clients through every phase of renewable energy projects.

As leader of the firm’s Energy & Natural Resources team, Anna primarily represents developers and owners in the acquisition, development, funding and financing of wind and solar projects across the country. Anna takes a holistic approach to wind and solar energy project development, representing clients from inception through operations or disposition.

She focuses half of her practice on project development, working with clients from early-stage greenfield efforts through permitting, site design, landowner engagement and local approvals to ready projects for construction and financing. The other half of her practice is devoted to transactional deal work, representing buyers, sellers and sponsors in the acquisition, sale, financing and investment of renewable energy projects.

Her comprehensive practice provides a unique perspective that allows her to anticipate future requirements and implement efficiencies to streamline the development process and ready the project for financing or sale. Likewise, her in-depth understanding of project development gives her an edge in negotiating purchase, sale and financing transactions and ensuring a practical and rational approach is taken.
