Skadden is one of the very few large, corporate law firms with a significant energy practice (both transactional and regulatory), which complements our leading M&A experience. Our firm has been engaged in a broad range of energy-related transactions, including M&A, asset auctions, joint ventures, strategic alliances, corporate and project financings, and project developments. Our corporate and energy attorneys represent a broad array of public and private companies, PE firms, investment banks, government entities, infrastructure funds, commercial banks and other lenders, and other institutions in the energy sector. We have handled numerous multibillion dollar transactions, including some of the most noteworthy U.S. electric and gas utility transactions over the last 20 years. We also have represented clients on a broad range of middle-market acquisitions, dispositions and financings.
Our Energy Regulation and Litigation Group is consistently ranked among the leading practices by Chambers and Legal 500. The group has been described in Chambers USA as “Outstanding, the best of the best, the gold standard” … with a “very broad and deep bench of outstanding attorneys” and, further, that “Skadden is an absolute powerhouse. … A true juggernaut practice.” Our leading role is due to the depth and breadth of our group’s experience in this area and the prominence of its practitioners, including former high-ranking government officials.
