Junaid ChidaO’Melveny & Myers LLP

The renewable energy practice at O’Melveny & Myers LLP comprises energy-focused practitioners with significant experience in project development, energy transactions, and regulatory matters at the federal and state level. Led from Los Angeles and New York by Michael Hamilton and Junaid Chida respectively, the practice is frequently engaged by banks and financial institutions, tax equity investors and developers. Co-head Chida is regarded for his work in the structuring and management of M&A and financing transactions in the renewable energy sector. Project finance and energy M&A lawyer Jeff Hoffner is a noteworthy practitioner in LA, who is seen with great regularity in matters pertaining to the construction and financing of renewable projects. The group expanded with the addition of four attorneys from Thompson & Knight in June 2021, including energy specialists Katie Coleman and Phillip Oldham in Austin, and subsequent opening of an office in Texas.
