(Los Angeles) – Akin Gump’s global project finance practice has been named a Law360 practice group of the year for project finance. In announcing its selection of the firm, Law360 cited Akin Gump’s work on “more than a dozen of the world’s largest renewable projects last year.”

Those projects include:

  • advising SunPower Corp. on eight solar projects in California and Nevada, which Law360 described as “one of the most work-intensive projects the firm tackled”
  • advising Northleaf Capital on an investment in a solar and wind portfolio in Texas
  • advising Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA) and Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Company (ADWEC) on one of the largest solar installations in the Middle East

Speaking about the group’s collective ability to handle large-scale projects, Edward Zaelke, chair of Akin Gump’s global project finance practice, said, “We’re getting some of the most interesting projects in the world in this space and it’s all of us, not one of us, that’s doing it.”
