Junaid Chida Recognized by NLJ as an Energy & Environmental Trailblazer

May 26, 2016

O'Melveny partner Junaid Chida is profiled in the May 26, 2016 National Law Journal’s 2016 Energy & Environmental Trailblazers. Chida told the magazine about how he got his start, recalling that “everyone wanted to do the big transactions, and an energy power deal came in and I volunteered.” The National Law Journal observed that Chida helped pioneer the way for financial institutions to take advantage of tax credits for renewable energy, a development Chida called a “game changer.” He added: “Renewables have grown from a small base to where we are today. Every government is concerned about addressing energy concerns and climate change.”
