Cuddy & Feder assisted an industry-leading international manufacturer seeking to acquire an appropriate site to build a new manufacturing plant in the United States and help them troubleshoot a web of complex issues and create a structure for advancing the transaction to closing.
Our Energy & Environmental Law Practice Group draws upon and complements the work of our Land Use, Zoning & Development, Real Estate, Corporate, and Finance practices. We understand the complex and constantly changing terrain of new, existing and expanded energy infrastructure and environmental operations.

Cuddy & Feder’s Energy lawyers recognize that the Energy Industry must constantly anticipate and react to the significant changes in the regulatory landscape and the pricing of power as either a drop-in fuel or a piped/wired commodity. We are familiar with your concerns whether your company’s legal and business issues arise in the Electric Utility Industry, Natural Gas/CNG Sector, or Oil & Petroleum. Our Energy Group can assist with independent power solutions such as Waste-To-Energy and Fuel Cell technologies as well as Renewable Energy Sources, including Solar and Geothermal systems.

Our experienced team can guide clients through permitting, entitlement and environmental issues as well as Project Finance Transactions with both private banking and public finance corporations, including federal Revenue Bond issuance. We also are sensitive to the intellectual property and corporate issues unique to the deregulating Energy sector. And, when necessary, we have the depth of experience to litigate across the regulatory, transactional, corporate and financial landscape of the Energy sphere.

Our Environment Law Group successfully advises clients on traditional environmental, risk assessment, disclosure and legal liability issues in the pre-transactional, due diligence and contract negotiation phases of real estate, corporate and financing matters. Our environmental lawyers are familiar with the NY State Brownfield Act and Voluntary Cleanup Programs as well as the Connecticut Transfer Act. We also have advised on Customer Service Agreements and other Oil & Petroleum industry agreements. Our LEED® AP Attorneys integrate sustainability and environmental considerations into all aspects of our clients’ businesses so we can optimally help our clients understand and embrace green business practices—culturally and legally.
