Cullen and Dykman has represented lenders, borrowers and other interested participants in a wide array of financial transactions relating to energy and utility businesses, assets and infrastructure. Our team approach to each project often involves the joint efforts of attorneys in the firm’s Energy and Utilities, Banking, Tax, Real Estate, and Lending practice groups, who are familiar with and understand the intricacies of energy-related clients and transactions. We have assisted and advised clients on various financing arrangements used for energy-related capital projects and acquisitions, including synthetic leasing, leveraged leasing, sale/leaseback, and lease/leaseback transactions, and project and corporate financing.
More generally, the firm routinely represents lenders and borrowers in mortgage securitized financings for land acquisitions. Firm attorneys have assisted clients in financing capital improvements and acquisitions and divestitures through joint venture arrangements, equity investments and use of long-term supply and purchase contracts. We also represent lenders and borrowers in connection with ground lease and leasehold financings and issuance of letters of credit, as well as commodity swaps and other hedging arrangements. We have provided advice and assistance to borrowers with tax-exempt bond and IDA financings for capital improvements and facility acquisitions.
