In the transmission area I served as project counsel to the 11 load-serving entities that are participants in the more than $2.0 Billion CapX 2020 Transmission Expansion Projects. I led the negotiation among the participants of key project agreements including the project participation agreement. My partner Bill Andrews and I were selected by The American Lawyer as one of its “Dealmakers of the Year 2011” for our work on the CapX 2020 Projects. In the generation area, I served as counsel to the Indiana Municipal Power Agency, which led the team negotiating project agreements including the participation agreement, project development agreement and asset purchase agreement among six public power participants and Peabody Energy in connection with the development of Prairie State, a 1600 MW, mine-mouth, pulverized coal-fired power plant now in service in southern Illinois. These are two examples of the many entities I have represented in developing, acquiring or disposing of transmission and generation assets.
