Law360 profiled our Energy & Infrastructure practice as one of its 2019 Project Finance Practice Groups of the Year, touting our work on major transportation, energy and infrastructure projects over the past year. This is the sixth time Orrick has been recognized as a Law360 Project Finance Practice Group of the Year.
The feature highlights several high profile matters that our team worked on, including the JFK Airport redevelopment initiative, the $1.5 billion Navy Hill redevelopment project in Virginia, and advising the French Department of Energy in negotiating the purchase prices for energy created by six offshore wind farms along the French coast. “There will always be a need for more public projects, and such projects remain a key part of Orrick's work,” Orrick’s Young Lee told Law360.
Blake H. Winburne, head of our Energy & Infrastructure practice, discussed the breadth of our practice across conventional power, renewables, oil and gas, mining and infrastructure. “The priority Orrick makes of diversifying into each of those five sectors distinguishes it from competitor firms. And it strengthens our relationships with our clients. Clients appreciate that they can come to Orrick on any number of issues keyed to project finance,” Blake said.
In addition to our project finance practice, Law360 has recognized Orrick for Employment and Sports & Betting Practice Groups of the Year.
