Buchalter’s Solar and Renewable Energy attorneys represent manufacturers, developers, operators and investors. Our expertise spans corporate, real estate and tax transactions, financial structuring agreements, regulatory issues, environmental compliance, intellectual property protection, construction law and dispute resolution. We guide our clients every step of the way, from the early stages of project development and mapping out risk management strategies, through financing and project implementation in this rapidly evolving regulatory environment.
Buchalter attorneys possess an acute understanding of the challenges emerging companies face with respect to capital requirements and financing structure, solar power development requirements and potential exit strategies. We are skilled at organizing, structuring and documenting all forms of agreements and transactions, including power purchase agreements and facility leases. We negotiate interconnection and transmission arrangements, perform due diligence, identify renewable energy credit and green certificate opportunities, and assist in scaling and structuring projects so as to maximize utilization of state and federal tax and incentive programs, as well as international carbon credit projects.
Our intellectual property attorneys have scientific as well as legal expertise, enabling them to appropriately identify patent issues and carry out the patent protection process, as well as to identify, secure and protect product branding issues, copyrights, and trade secrets.
