Deep understanding of all phases of the business, as well as of the regulations governing them
Strong practice areas relevant to utilities, including M&A, private equity, restructuring, and corporate finance
Few law firms have Weil’s extensive experience counseling diversified and electric utilities. The strength of our utilities practice is found in our lawyers’ understanding of and experience with the entire marketplace for energy, from downstream oil and gas to the generation, distribution, and sale of electricity. Our lawyers have a subtle knowledge of the utilities business and use that knowledge to assist clients in meeting a wide variety of business challenges.
Although our representation of Enron during its bankruptcy – as well as several successor businesses – serves as a signal representation, Weil’s involvement in the industry long precedes Enron. For years, we have worked with companies – and their investors – engaged in all phases of electric power, including generation, transmission, distribution, sales, and marketing.
The scope of our representations has touched upon virtually every practice group at our firm, notably M&A, private equity, corporate finance, restructuring, and various types of litigation, both in and out of bankruptcy. Whether clients need a broad-based legal team or a very specific legal service, Weil has an outstanding track record of delivering legal counsel to its utilities clients.
