Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell advises project developers regarding a wide spectrum of permitting, land use, and other regulatory requirements associated with electric power project development and site redevelopment. We provide expert guidance from the early stages of leasing and site evaluation to the permitting of projects and analysis of compliance for transactions. Our attorneys provide representation to independent power producers and storage developers, energy trade associations, large energy consumers, and energy efficiency-industry companies regarding electric resource plans, coal-plant retirement, and redevelopment plans. We have also represented local governments in evaluating legal questions associated with Bureau of Land Management rights-of-way, environmental clearance, and other approvals associated with natural gas, wind, and solar project development.
We have particular expertise in the overlap of renewable energy and aviation. Our team counsels both solar companies and airport sponsors develop solar facilities on airport property. Additionally, we advise clients, collaborate with federal agencies, and undertake cutting-edge litigation regarding the effects of wind turbines, transmission facilities, and other projects on aircraft and airspace, including the particular impacts that wind turbines may have on radar and other air navigation facilities.
