Renewable Energy

When a clean renewable energy company was interested in expanding into the State of New York, they selected the depth and breadth of attorneys from Hancock Estabrook to address their legal needs.

When faced with the intricacies of New York and local law and the complexities of doing business in Upstate New York, the attorneys at Hancock Estabrook provided valuable knowledge and local connections to assist the energy company in partnership with their existing counsel, who hailed from national law firms and large urban centers. Notably, our attorneys helped the energy company navigate multiple litigation matters by keeping the timely and economical resolution of the issues always the goal, and our connections across all of Central New York and the Southern Tier fostered positive interactions with funders, taxing authorities, and municipalities.

Procuring a multi-disciplinary team of attorneys from the Environmental, Corporate, Tax, Real Estate, Litigation and Municipal practice areas, we were able to assist in the development of seven new clean energy facilities across the State. We helped the energy company address real property issues, negotiate agreements with a variety of Industrial Development Agencies, and navigate contentious zoning, SEQRA and environmental issues in front of municipal boards.

Our attorneys provide comprehensive and timely legal counsel in all areas of project development. Learn more about our experience with the renewable wind and solar energy industry.
