On the leading edge of novel investment structures for the energy industry, O’Melveny helps clients create transactions that accommodate the unique needs of developers and investors in an ever-changing legal and business landscape. 

We are consistently viewed as one of the few elite tax practices in the renewable and clean energy sectors combining a depth of experience unparalleled in the wind, solar, clean coal, geothermal, bio-fuel and leasing industries. In fact, O’Melveny helped create the standard LLC “flip structure” that has become the investment backbone for renewable energy transactions. Our clients turn to us for the deep practical and legal experience needed to structure transactions that maximize the investment, production and other tax credits  afforded these types of transactions.

O’Melveny is also a leading international firm when it comes to new and innovative infrastructure projects. We have worked closely with clients on numerous projects related to water purification and delivery projects, mineral delivery and off-loading facilities, pipelines, toll roads, tunnels, ports, historic and cultural projects and institutions, aviation and transportation facilities. Our team also has deep experience in complex acquisitions and restructurings related to energy and infrastructure companies. Both in the private and public sectors, O’Melveny’s tax lawyers have created structures involving taxable as well as “tax-free” acquisitions and dispositions around the world.
