Tell us about your company in 3 sentences or less.
Mintz is a leading law firm whose Energy & Sustainability team has been at the frontlines of the energy transition and sustainability revolution for two decades, with a fully integrated team providing unparalleled service advising virtually every type of client engaged in the sector. As a market leader on the cutting edge of clean energy projects for the past two decades, our team is built for this moment to advance innovation, transform infrastructure, and scale solutions integral to business success and a thriving planet.
What is your role in the energy transition and how are you unique in the sector?
Mintz pioneered one of the first legal practices in the US focused solely on energy innovation and sustainability almost 20 years ago. In the last decade, our team has:
- Annually advised over 250 US and international clients spanning the ecosystem from emerging companies to global corporations, family offices to major venture capital, private equity and infrastructure funds, and project lenders to developers, sponsors, and strategic investors.
- Completed more than 800 transactions across the clean energy / clean tech spectrum over the past decade, totaling well over US $30 billion in new investment value.
What are the macro trends currently affecting you?
Amongst our clients, we are seeing an unprecedented amount of capital raising for climate technologies, projects, and climate infrastructure, particularly in private equity and not just venture capital, to scale climate solutions. There are also considerable amount of opportunities available under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law & Inflation Reduction Act across all sectors. We continue to monitor opportunities through our Energy Funding Matrix, which is sourced across federal agencies and collects clean energy transition funding opportunities in a central location to ensure our clients find the relevant grant, loan, or financing program that fits their organization’s renewable energy goals.
What are your most recent updates and what does 2023 have in store for you?
Mintz continues to lead innovative and first of its kind transactions, not only in ventures but also with fund partners, global companies seeking expansion opportunities, which our Project Finance team is seeing across the board. Earlier this year, Mintz represented Logical Buildings, a decarbonization technology and ESG solutions provider, in a “first of its kind” $110M Virtual Power Plant project facility, an energy efficiency financing vehicle. In October of 2023, Mintz will host their Clean Energy Transition Summit, additional information can be found through their monthly Energy & Sustainability newsletter.
