Power, Energy and Utilities

Power, Energy and Utilities

McGuireWoods’ lawyers work extensively with financial institutions that serve the syndicated debt finance needs of companies in the power, energy and utilities industries. We span all areas of finance in this industry, bringing a dynamic range of legal acumen in debt finance, project financing, lease financing, municipal financing, public-private partnerships, environmental regulation, renewable energy development, domestic and international privatization, real estate and construction.

Our team has recently completed debt transactions for electric utilities, water utilities and natural gas companies, as well as renewable energy generation transactions, securitizations of energy savings receivables and other infrastructure transactions. For example, we recently represented the lead arrangers in connection with a $1.2 billion financing of coal and gas-fired electric plants in the Midwestern United States.
