The ‘very collaborative’ team at McGuireWoods LLP ‘interfaces well with clients and their respective counsels’ and is instructed by lenders and sponsors in energy projects. Renewables projects are a particular area of focus; here, Becky Diffen in Austin advised Macquarie Capital on the development, tax equity financing and construction financing of a 200MW wind farm in Oldham and Deaf Smith counties, Texas; and Timothy Callahan in Chicago advised KeyBank National Association on several financings including a $80m back-leveraged financing for a portfolio of over 80 solar projects California and a $30m refinancing for a 25MW wind farm in Idaho. Charlotte-based Adam Greene and Marvin Rogers, the latter of whom jointly heads the team with Matthew Kapinos in Houston, and Brian Kelly in Baltimore, are also recommended. Richmond-based Joanne Katsantonis is also a key figure. Senior counsel Kate Watlington in Charlotte joined in 2018 from Latham & Watkins LLP.
