Regulatory, financial, and tech company expertise. As one of the most active firms in clean technologies, we support strategic client business objectives in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Global economic and environmental forces are fueling a groundswell of investments in clean technologies. As an emerging industry that depends on new ideas and sheer determination, clean tech businesses present extraordinary challenges and opportunities. We’re deeply committed to addressing client needs at every stage: from the earliest discovery or concept; through development, funding, partnerships, and large-scale utility operations; to public offerings and other capital events.

Goodwin Procter’s clean technology and energy practice focuses on entrepreneurs, operating companies, and investors who are pioneers in the clean tech and energy markets. We’re currently counsel to over 500 technology-based clients, including some of the leading wind, solar and biofuels companies and represent 200 venture capital and private equity firms, leveraging relationships with investors on behalf of our clients.

Successful clean tech ventures often bring together different industry and professional sectors. We work the same way, collaborating in interdisciplinary teams to provide more cost-efficient and extraordinarily effective counsel. Our internal network helps clients find private equity financing and secure intellectual property rights. We guide clients through M&A transactions and provide a variety of financial services. We help clients develop and finance clean technology manufacturing facilities and renewable energy power generation projects. Litigators with extensive courtroom experience in the tech sector protect client interests and provide strategies for avoiding litigation when possible. Our collective expertise helps clients capitalize on opportunities while anticipating and minimizing the risks in such ventures.

As part of our client commitment, we’re well attuned to new and evolving government policies that foster growth in the industry. With more than 20 former government officials in our practice, we understand the intricacies of government agencies and the decision-making process, and advocate for fair and reasonable outcomes that will support the future of clean technology.
