Energy Technology & Innovation

Clark Hill is the nation’s premier legal and consulting solutions provider for energy technology innovators. We provide the strategic and legal guidance clients need to thrive, whether they are entrepreneurs, start-ups, or large-scale corporations.

As one of the first law firms to develop an energy practice focused on representing companies creating “green” or “clean” technologies, we have expanded our practice to also include full-service representation of companies advancing technology innovations used in established energy sectors.

Our attorneys represent companies developing innovative technologies to generate energy using renewable sources, engineer new forms of storage, and increase the efficiency of transmission and end-use systems. Our clients include industry leaders in the following sectors:

  • Clean technology and renewables (solar, wind, water)
  • Energy management (smart grid, lighting, storage, efficiency)
  • Industrial (motors, robotics, solar production line machinery)
  • Oil, gas, and industrial processing
  • Resource management (recycling, and waste-to-energy)

We have been at the forefront of the industry since the earliest days of clean technology. On the telecommunications end, we have been actively involved on a national basis, in more than 25 states, as they have worked towards establishing minimum functionality criteria for the Advanced Metering or Smart Metering manufacturing sector. Our attorneys vigorously track and follow changes in legislation and regulatory requirements for technology related to the development of a Smart Grid, at both the State and Federal levels. We have been involved in other ancillary areas including Demand Response and Energy Efficiency initiatives. We have developed a substantial Renewable Energy practice, where we have been responsible for working on more than six large-scale commercial-grade solar projects, from project initiation, through finance and regulatory approval stages, to deal completion and project construction.

Our attorneys have also developed extensive experience in representing cutting-edge telecommunications and technology companies that are providing the next generation of telecommunications services and are creating hardware and software products that are revolutionizing both the telecom and energy verticals.
