Crowell & Moring Boosts Energy and Corporate Practices with Addition of Six-Member Team
Washington, D.C. – July 1, 2013: Crowell & Moring LLP has bolstered its national Environment, Energy & Resources Group with the addition of a six-member energy team from Dickstein Shapiro LLP. The new additions include partners Larry F. Eisenstat, who led Dickstein's Energy Group, and corporate-transactional partners Patrick W. Lynch, and Jonathan C. Odell. Also joining with the team is senior policy advisor Patricia M. Alexander, counsel Deborah A. Carpentier, and associate Diana A. Jeschke.
The nationally-recognized team offers a complete range of regulatory, project development, transactional, litigation, and compliance experience at the federal, state and local levels. Their clients consist largely of companies that develop, finance, operate, acquire, sell, restructure, or manage energy and other infrastructure projects, including renewable and conventional power plants, electric and gas transmission lines, energy storage and distributed generation, and water treatment and desalination facilities.
"Larry, Patricia, Pat, and Jon are renowned in the energy sectors for their considerable skill, creativity, versatility, and exceptional client service. They bring a wealth of experience, industry knowledge, and relationships to our firm that will significantly enhance Crowell's ability to assist its many energy industry clients," said Scott L. Winkelman, partner and co-chair of Crowell & Moring's Environment, Energy & Resources Group. "Through their sophisticated understanding of energy markets, their project development and management skills, and their corporate transactional experience, the team will help Crowell & Moring clients navigate regulatory challenges, advise on emerging policy issues, structure and document corporate and transactional matters, as well as tackle bet-the-company disputes."
Eisenstat stated, "After considerable study, Crowell & Moring decided to build as fine and comprehensive an energy practice as exists anywhere in the country. We are thrilled to join such a talented team of experienced and creative lawyers, and we are committed to helping Crowell realize this very important objective. All of us are excited about the opportunity to work with our new colleagues in the many practice areas that comprise Crowell's robust services and geographic platform, such as the firm's environmental, corporate, litigation, and tax practices. Tapping this range of experience and knowledge will allow us to offer our clients broad and comprehensive solutions to their most complex challenges in today's ever-changing, but almost always uncertain, energy world."
