Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP was highly active for both sponsors and lenders in the renewable energy space; recent mandates include New York-based Robert Eberhardt acting for Allianz Risk Transfer and REsurety on a ten-year proxy revenue swap and associated price hedging arrangements for the Bloom wind farm in Kansas, and Benjamin Koenigsberg advising the lenders on the construction and equity bridge loan financing of the Deerfield wind project in Michigan. The practice is best known on the lender side, where remits extended to a number of multibillion-dollar conventional power deals; the team assisted a consortium of lenders on the $2.3bn financing for the Southland repowering project in Southern California, and Todd Alexander and Eberhardt advised GE, BNP Paribas and Crédit Agricole on the $1.6bn financing of the construction of the Cricket Valley Energy Center in New York. Practice co-head Keith Martin and cross-border specialist Noam Ayali (both based in Washington DC) are also key figures. All named partners are based in New York save where stated otherwise. Rohit Chaudhry joined Kirkland & Ellis LLP in 2018.
