McGuireWoods LLP announced today that it has expanded its Energy and
Environmental Department with the addition of Brian J. Kelly, who will serve as
a partner in the firm’s Baltimore office.
Kelly’s practice includes global energy and infrastructure development,
mergers and acquisitions, and project finance transactions. He has experience in
structuring, negotiating and drafting power purchase, tolling and joint
development agreements, engineering, procurement and construction contracts,
fuel supply and transportation agreements, and related project development and

seeking to purchase, invest in or develop power projects located within the
United States and abroad.
“Brian’s diverse corporate practice will well serve our energy and
environmental clients as they look to operate and expand their businesses amid
an ever-evolving legal and regulatory environment,” said
Joanne Katsantonis, co-chair of the firm’s Energy and Environmental
Department. “We are delighted to have him on the team.”
Previously an associate in the Washington, D.C., office of Bracewell &
Giuliani LLP, Kelly has represented independent power producers, project
developers, electric and gas suppliers, financial institutions, private equity
funds, life sciences companies, and other clients involved in complex financial
transactions. He earned his J.D. from the University of Baltimore School of Law,
cum laude, in 2001.
