Session 1: M&A Trends in Renewable Energy - Most development projects are bought and sold at least two times prior to beginning operations, and many more are sold once they have operated for a period of time. Listen to a discussion about current trends in the industry and key issues that tend to arise. The effect of PTC expiration and tax reform on deals will be addressed in addition to the sale of single projects. Also, explore portfolio and company sales as well as the acquisition of repowered projects.

Session 2: Due Diligence and M&A for Clean Energy Projects Learn how to utilize due diligence to identify and allocate risks in transaction documents and determine overall viability of the target.

Session 3: Ethics in Negotiation: The True Cost of Representation - When a client discloses a terrible truth or reveals an unspeakable purpose, what obligations do the Texas Rules of Disciplinary Conduct place on an attorney? What happens when it’s time for an attorney to move on? Explore the unexpected answers given by the Rules using both recent and historical real world cases.

Session 4: Greed...for Lack of a Better[n't] Good - Using a series of case studies, explore the ethical obligations and fiduciary duties owed by lawyers to clients and how the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure are implicated in each.

Session 5: Border Searches of Cell Phones and Computers As unsettling as they are, digital border searches are legal. Delete your client files from your devices if you want to avoid delays occasioned by a search.
