Fraser Stryker is a leading provider of legal services in the growing field of renewable energy. The Firm was involved in the drafting of Nebraska's Community-Based Energy Development (C-BED) legislation and has represented utilities, developers, and landowners in a variety of renewable energy projects.
The lawyers in the Firm's renewable energy practice group have broad experience in all aspects of renewable energy development. Our work has included wind energy development, geothermal projects, biofuels, and waste-to-energy projects. Fraser Stryker's team-oriented approach achieves the cost-effective delivery of high quality legal services. The attorneys from each practice group at Fraser Stryker regularly tap into the talent pool from other practice groups at the firm. This enables our clients to respond rapidly to emerging legal issues. For instance, a wind energy project involves site acquisition, permitting, and construction law issues. Our team has experts in each area to promptly and effectively serve our clients. Environmental issues such as potential wetlands impacts may arise during renewable energy projects.
