Represented a New York-based developer and financier of solar energy projects in disputes in both the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey and the Superior Court of New Jersey arising from three municipal project financings for the design and construction of dozens of solar power electric generating facilities on government-owned properties in Morris, Somerset, and Sussex counties. Successfully obtained a judgment discharging more than $40 million in Municipal Mechanics’ Liens levied against public project funds and then secured an affirmance of that decision following an expedited appeal. Defeated multiple attempts to freeze tens of millions of dollars in proceeds from solar renewable energy certificates, section 1603 grants from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and revenue derived from the sale of solar electricity. Negotiated extremely complex global settlement agreements that resolved disputes with the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor, county improvement authorities, and county governments.
