Orrick Adds Debt Finance Rising Star to Energy & Infrastructure Team in New York


  • Jared Joyce-Schleimer advises sponsors and lenders on financing matters in major energy and infrastructure projects.
  • He follows the arrivals of energy finance advisors Jeff Kayes and Adam Griffin from Baker Botts in April, as Orrick shores up the finance arm of our leading power, renewables and infrastructure practice which ranked No. 3 globally (Inframation).
  • Jared joins Orrick from Kirkland & Ellis.

“Jared adds another top-quality energy finance practitioner to our team, particularly as we grow to meet demand from our private equity clients launching energy and infrastructure focused credit funds,” said Dahl Thompson, leader of Orrick’s global Energy & Infrastructure practice.

Jared represents lenders and sponsors in complex financings, including restructurings, related to power, infrastructure and renewable financing transactions. He has experience in direct lending and climate change mitigation projects as well.

“Orrick offers a top tier practice and a collaborative and forward-looking team – and I’m thrilled to help them continue to build out their complex financing offering and join partners I’ve practiced across from for some time. I’m also excited to take on more sustainable infrastructure projects, and Orrick’s leadership in both energy and tech provides the ideal platform,” added Jared.

Jared has worked on matters touching Asia, EMEA and Latin America, and has also assisted countries across those regions in bringing sustainable projects to market through his pro bono practice.

Other 2022 additions to the Orrick E&I team include: corporate PPA advisor Teresa Hill from K&L Gates, project development advisor Julia Balas from MoFo, and energy private equity advisor David Aaronson from Willkie Farr & Gallagher as Orrick continues to invest in our market leading platform to address demand for energy transition advice.

Orrick’s U.S. renewable energy, power and infrastructure practices are each ranked Band 1 by Chambers.
