Craig C. Hunter

Craig Hunter’s nearly 35-year legal career has encompassed a wide range of litigation, corporate and real estate matters representing clients in traditional as well as emerging industries. Craig’s dedication to learning a company’s operations and developing an open line of communication with its principals enables him to effectively advocate on behalf of clients to resolve litigation challenges and capitalize on business opportunities.

Craig’s transactional practice is focused on corporate formation, mergers and acquisitions, and commercial agreements representing both for- and non-profit entities. He has participated in a range deals, including the negotiation of two stock purchase/merger agreements representing the corporate seller, as well as many commercial and residential leases and contracts for the sale of businesses, corporate and partnership buy-sell agreements, private placement memoranda and commercial credit facilities. In recent years, Craig has developed a renewable energy transactional practice representing wind and solar developers in connection with utility-scale projects, including reviewing complex power purchase agreements, forming limited liability companies, securing entitlements, and drafting long-term leases and development agreements with land owners, most recently on tribal land.

Craig’s civil litigation practice currently focuses on commercial and contract disputes, including energy- and utility-related claims, bank credit facility lawsuits and securities industry FINRA arbitrations. He also has a strong background in insurance coverage litigation as well as the defense of professional, employment practices and construction liability claims. Craig has significant jury and bench trial experience and has participated in numerous arbitrations. At the conclusion of litigation, Craig strives to identify lessons learned that the client can apply to its operations to help avoid future lawsuits.
