Top priorities in the energy industry include the safety and reliability of the energy infrastructure and compliance with state directives to pursue clean energy options. As a consequence, we are seeing a proliferation of energy construction projects, nationally and internationally. This growth in energy projects has created a host of new legal challenges and evolving risks which, managed effectively, can have a dramatic impact on the success of energy project plans.
At Troutman Sanders, our nationally ranked construction group and energy section have enabled us to form a team of lawyers focused on energy and utility construction projects. We bring our wealth of experience to all aspects of planning and implementing new energy-construction projects, including financing, contract structure, environmental concerns and government regulation matters.
