Partners in our energy future.
Since 2000, Stahl, Davies, Sewell, Chavarria & Friend, LLP has assisted clients in reaching their energy goals. In fact, we have provided support for more than 14 GW of energy projects in Texas and beyond. Our attorneys have broad experience guiding clients from inception to commercial production by assisting in all aspects of the development, operation, finance, acquisition, construction, and sale of energy projects. The firm maneuvers between utility scale “traditional” and renewable energy ventures, and has experience with other technologies such as rooftop solar and energy storage projects.
The firm’s attorneys possess backgrounds in commercial real estate, state and local tax, natural resources, oil and gas, construction, and environmental law and rely on this experience to provide unparalleled service to our clients. We prepare ground leases, easements, crossing agreements, surface waivers, accommodation arrangements, and related documents for renewable and clean energy projects. For our project developer and sponsor clients, we analyze and resolve the myriad legal, title, and survey issues that arise in the development of an energy project and closely collaborate with governmental agencies, project lenders, hedge providers, and tax equity investors in coordinating the range of real estate instruments, government approvals, property tax incentive agreements, surveys, title policies, and legal opinion letters necessary to close deals. The firm performs due diligence and project review for investors, lenders, buyers, and related parties. We provide counsel to our clients regarding regulatory requirements, Texas tax issues, and environmental and permitting issues involved in project construction and development. We also prepare, review, and advise clients on engineering, procurement, and construction agreements and balance of plant agreements for energy projects.
We have the unique capability to operate as a part of your team, and our attorneys welcome that role. We view your project like you do: as an opportunity to further energy independence, environmental stewardship, and economic development at the ground level. Our team understands where you come from and where you are going because we want to get there, too. Contact us to inquire how we can work together.
