Daily Journal Again Names Adam Umanoff Among Top 100 Calif. Lawyers

(Los Angeles) – Akin Gump energy partner Adam Umanoff has been named by Daily Journal to its list of the “Top 100 Lawyers in California,” honoring “the 100 California attorneys doing the most cutting-edge work in litigation, regulation and corporate transactions” between January 2012 and July 2013.

Among the engagements spotlighted in the publication’s profile of Mr. Umanoff are his representation of SunPower Corp. in its sale of the 580-MW Antelope Valley solar photovoltaic (PV) project, which will be the largest solar project in the world once it is completed, and his representation of Portland General Electric Co. in its acquisition of a planned 300-MW wind project in Washington state.

The profile also noted his ongoing work in securing financing for a groundbreaking joint venture solar thermal project in Riverside County, Calif., that would be the first to use mirrors instead of solar PV panels to heat steam.

This represents Mr. Umanoff’s third appearance on the Daily Journal’s “Top 100” list; he was also selected in 2010 and 2011.

Founded in 1945, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is a leading international law firm with more than 850 attorneys in offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
