Smart In Your World
Few sectors are evolving as rapidly or touch our lives in as many ways as Energy & Cleantech. ArentFox Schiff understands the sector thoroughly, and we support our clients in navigating the challenges of an industry in transition. Our highly recognized team covers multiple practice areas to provide our clients with seamless service and full insights.

Our Focus

ArentFox Schiff lawyers are smart in your world. We have been working with the electric power and natural gas industries for decades, and are alongside our clients as they face the practical challenges of operating businesses in times of great change. We advise clients on complying with changing environmental laws, decommissioning facilities, remediation projects, repurposing existing sites, and developing state-of-the-art zero carbon facilities.

We also advise clients developing new energy solutions, whether protecting intellectual property, importing raw materials or finished products, obtaining venture capital, going to market, or deploying new technologies.

We advocate for our clients when their matters bring them to federal and state courts, arbitrators and mediators, and in front of regulatory agencies and commissions. We have been involved in developing major state and federal energy legislation that has set the foundations for many of the electric industry policies of today, and in informing the policies of the future.

And we bring this deep industry experience to bear when advising lenders and investors in the energy sector.
