Eli KatzLatham & Watkins LLP

Headed by Los Angeles-based partner Jeffrey Greenberg , under the umbrella of the firm’s global project development and finance group, Latham & Watkins LLP is ‘at the cutting-edge of transactions‘ for developers, sponsors, funds and lenders across the spectrum of renewable energy matters. The team is particularly accomplished at structuring financing transactions in the sector, where it is able to leverage strong institutional ties with some of the leading commercial banks in the space, including Citibank, which it advised in connection with KKR’s convertible equity investment in a NextEra Partners portfolio of solar and wind energy projects. ‘Truly best in class‘, New York-based partner Eli Katz was also involved in the aforementioned deal and is particularly strong at ensuring deals are structured in such a way as to maximize tax subsidies. Also based in New York, Matthew Henegar is a key member of the team and provides ‘unmatched legal structuring and transaction management’ to banks, developers and private equity funds on renewable financings, including ones featuring highly complex intercreditor arrangements.
