As partner in Kirkland’s Environmental Transactions group and leader of its ESG & Impact practice, Alex counsels clients seeking to navigate complex and evolving Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investor demands, regulatory considerations, and changing market dynamics. For example, Alex serves as lead environmental and ESG counsel to numerous private equity, banking and corporate clients engaging in transactions or projects focused on energy and infrastructure, including those developing and deploying emerging technologies, such as battery storage, solar energy generation, carbon capture and sequestration, energy efficiency services, and other ‘green technologies.’ These transactions require creative due diligence and risk mitigation solutions to manage evolving regulatory risks, such as fire safety in the context of battery storage, or permitting and community relations issues in the context of carbon capture. In addition to transactions, she counsels clients in the context of fundraising for climate mitigation or adaptation-focused funds, as well as those navigating ESG considerations in connection with initial public offerings or taking companies public through SPACs. Drawing on her experience negotiating hundreds of transactions, she delivers commercial and practical advice, tailored to the specific needs and strategic objectives of the client.
