Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell has worked in almost every aspect of the electric power and climate change sectors. Our lawyers bring significant experience to project development, regulatory and transactional matters, policy and litigation applicable to clients operating at the crossroads of the rapid decarbonization process, reliability concerns and an increased centering of equity.
Our team is steeped in the development, acquisition, divesture and closure of energy storage, transmission and generation resources, including wind, solar, hybrid, geothermal, biomass, hydroelectric, hydrogen and natural gas. We carefully track policy and legal developments relevant to the sector to craft innovative solutions for the evolving problems related to energy transition, climate mitigation and adaptation.
We are equally at home in regulatory proceedings before state Public Utilities Commissions and other state agencies, stakeholder engagements at regional transmission organizations and independent system operators, at trial and appellate courtrooms, as well as working with public agencies to secure necessary entitlements and sitting at a negotiating table.
Our team is adept at navigating the constantly evolving legal landscape of climate change on federal, state, and local levels. We help companies at the forefront of cutting-edge climate mitigation technologies understand complex environmental, permitting and carbon markets landscapes. Our lawyers also work with local governments and other entities to establish plans, develop and enforce regulations, and otherwise advance climate mitigation and adaptation objectives.
