Tom Dougherty

DENVER, CO—More than 40 years of renewable energy investment in the U.S. has led to the current installment of 550,000 acres of solar capacity and 67,000 individual wind turbines. As these numbers continue to grow, powered by a widespread commitment to clean power generation, so does the need to manage the industrial materials used in that process throughout their full lifecycle. Toward that end, Lewis Roca announced today the formation of its Renewable Energy End-of-Life Planning Group.

The multidisciplinary team, co-led by Denver partner Tom Dougherty, associate Dietrich Hoefner and Phoenix of counsel James Voyles, will draw on Lewis Roca’s many years of experience in the energy and utilities sector. The team will assist clients with matters including:

• Navigating the regulatory challenges and opportunities around the renewable energy lifecycle
• Real estate and land use issues related to renewable facilities
• Protecting intellectual property for newly developed technologies and companies
• Storage, disposal, and recycling of renewable energy facility materials and equipment
• Issues related to tribal governments, land, and resources
• Recycling and reuse of valuable equipment and commodities
• Legislative and regulatory affairs
