Douglas E. Lamb

Doug is a co-chair of the firm's renewable energy and cleantech sector group. He represents borrowers, developers, underwriters and lenders in a range of tax-advantaged structures using tax-exempt bonds and leases, state and federal tax credits and commercial debt. He has handled transactional matters in more than 40 states.

He has significant experience handling financing for economic development, solid waste, renewable energy (including solar, wind, hydro, biomass and biogas) and energy efficiency projects. As part of this experience, he has completed financings using production and investment tax credits, new-markets tax credits and other federal and state incentives. He represents and negotiates with all types of transaction participants, e.g., local, state and federal governmental issuers and sponsors, banks and financial institutions, lenders and lessors, equity investors, credit enhancers, rating agencies, nonprofit and for profit borrowers, lessees and guarantors, contractors, accountants, and technical and feasibility consultants.

Many of the projects Doug handles are unrated, nonrecourse project financings that require equity capital investment and the creation of public-private partnerships as well as special purpose governmental and corporate entities. As such, they also require negotiation of the agreements to secure the land, revenue, financing and capital for these projects. As a result, he regularly teams with his partners in the tax, energy, real estate and corporate departments and brings a true team approach to his work on behalf of clients.

From 1993 to 2001, Doug served his country in the Virginia Army National Guard, reaching the highest rank of Captain.
