Sutherland has played a lead role in restructuring the nuclear industry. In recent years, our lawyers have been responsible for the most significant acquisitions of nuclear assets, bringing to bear Sutherland’s experience in mergers and acquisitions, antitrust, government contracts, intellectual property, employee benefits, and tax to structure and close complex multinational transactions. We also have negotiated and structured international joint ventures in the nuclear field, drawing on our intimate knowledge of the multinational regulation of trade in nuclear commodities and technology.
Sutherland works with clients holding major contracts with the U.S. Department of Energy and other agencies of the U.S. Government. In the litigation arena, we emphasize finding pragmatic solutions to disputes, but when a negotiated outcome is not feasible, we are veteran litigators and have substantial experience with nuclear-related issues in courts and before arbitral tribunals.
Our lawyers help craft nuclear energy policy before the U.S. Department of Energy and in the Congress, drawing on the firm’s broad knowledge in all matters of energy policy. We also have specific experience with international trade in nuclear commodities and technology.
