Clean energy companies are making a difference for our future. We’d like to make a difference for them.

Founding Attorney

Brad has served as in-house counsel and outside counsel to many leading clean energy companies over his 17-year legal career. As associate general counsel of BrightSource Energy, Brad advised the company on all of its U.S. and international project development activities, including site acquisition and permitting, PPAs and other project agreements, strategic joint development arrangements and project financing.

Before BrightSource, Brad was a partner at two prominent AmLaw 100 law firms, where he represented Vestas Wind Systems, Calpine Corporation, Actus Lend Lease and others in the development, finance and equipment supply for power generation and military housing projects.

As a buyer of outside legal services at BrightSource, Brad learned first hand that there’s often a gap between the services that a client needs and those its outside counsel wants to provide. As a former BigLaw partner, Brad also understands the inefficiencies in the traditional law firm model. Brad brings that experience and knowledge with him to Clean Energy Counsel, where he provides the responsive service his clients need at a fair price they can afford.
