Firm attorneys are also currently developing a number of additional innovative methodologies in the realm of renewable energy law, including projects that involve virtual net metering, offshore wind energy, and energy resilience banks.
Firm attorneys are also working on developing innovative methodologies in the realm of Social Investment Law, including social investment hedge funds and non-profit spin-offs that would enable the opportunity for people to invest funds as a benefit corporation or related socially beneficial entity.
