TransportationManatt’s Transportation Group is dedicated to providing public and private clients with the widest range of high-quality legal and government representation. From high-speed trains to subways and highways, Manatt attorneys are experienced and adept in meeting clients’ needs from project inception to completion. Our professionals have experience in privatization and financing matters in both domestic and international projects, as well as matters of public procurement, land use and zoning, and in fostering political support and obtaining necessary governmental approvals to advance our clients’ projects.
Energy, Environment & ResourcesThe Energy, Environment & Resources transactions lawyers at Manatt have one of our firm’s fastest-growing practices. That growth reflects our depth of experience and skill in dealing with the interaction of increasingly complex environmental and energy regulations that confront every company doing business in the United States. Our attorneys have a well-deserved reputation for a preeminent, comprehensive practice focusing on the global energy industry. Although we represent private- and public-sector energy consumers on a variety of issues, our primary focus is on companies that develop, produce, market, acquire, transport and process energy resources.
WaterOur Water Group has over 30 years of experience in representing water and other investor-owned utilities and developers on a wide range of financing, environmental, water law and water utility issues. We are experienced in utility finance, including public and private debt and equity offerings. We also have experience in mergers and acquisitions and in obtaining state regulatory approvals associated with debt and equity issuances by public utilities, mergers and acquisitions of public utilities, and other commercial and financing transactions. We recently obtained state regulatory approval for a subsidiary of American Water Works, the largest investor-owned United States water and wastewater utility company, for an initial public offering and divestiture from a German conglomerate.
We represent public utilities before state and federal regulatory commissions in regard to the development, financing and construction of major utility infrastructure projects, such as water desalination plants, storage and distribution facilities and other water and wastewater facilities. We also advise developers and public utilities in acquiring, administering and protecting water rights.
