Developers of energy projects face complex challenges, requiring both precision and scope from the project’s legal team. Verrill Dana's Energy Group consists of a well integrated, multi-disciplinary team of experienced professionals. Because of our depth of experience across a wide range of areas -- including utility and environmental regulation, real estate, finance, corporate tax and government relations, our Energy Group is able to coordinate and implement the full range of legal services required to successfully represent energy clients in today's evolving energy markets and regulations. We counsel energy developers to both anticipate regulatory developments and manage the regulatory process.

We serve as counsel in complex energy transactions. These transactions include: sales and acquisitions of generation facilities, including hydro and wind facilities; mergers and acquisitions involving energy companies and regulated utilities; purchases and sales of electric energy and capacity; acquisition of utility rights-of-way or energy corridors; advice regarding energy and new markets tax credits; and the permitting of many major new high-voltage electric transmission lines, high-pressure natural gas pipelines and wind energy facilities. We regularly represent both generators and transmission providers before FERC and the Maine PUC in proceedings such as rate cases, certificate proceedings and consumer complaint cases, and before the Maine DEP, LUPC and municipalities in seeking siting approval.
