Michelle AbreuOMG

OMG‘s energy work is boosted by the presence of specialists in the team, with energy practice head Michelle Abreu promoted to partner in December 2021 and energy consultant Emily Sucart hired from Guzmán Ariza in January 2022. Since their promotion and hire, Abreu and Sucart have worked on a power purchase agreement (PPA) for Streamline Integrated Energy regarding one of the first waste-to-energy plants in the Caribbean. Esperanza Cabral brings corporate expertise to the practice, regularly co-leading on matters such as acquisitions of renewable energy assets, including due diligence, financing for a solar energy project, and reducing the tax implications of the sale of shares in a wind farm. With oversight from firm president Leonel Melo, the firm often takes on regulatory matters, entering into negotiations with regulators such as the Dominican Tax Authority and working on regulatory elements of transactions. Clients are usually energy companies, but the firm also advises investors on energy projects.
