Our Commitment to Diversity
John C. Crossley

John Crossley is a practice area leader of the firm’s Energy, Infrastructure, and Resources practice. John's practice focuses on developing, buying, and selling renewable energy projects throughout the United States, from site acquisition, to project and portfolio acquisitions and dispositions, as well as supporting tax equity and debt finance transactions. In addition to sponsor-side representation, John has worked with multiple tax equity investors and financing parties across the country to fund and finance wind, solar, battery energy storage, carbon sequestration, hydrogen, and other energy projects.

With over 20 years of experience, John has worked on billions of dollars of projects that produce tens of gigawatts of power. He knows and understands the issues that are important to energy clients. He also appreciates how massive an undertaking a new energy project can be, with an understanding of organizing site acquisition, local government interaction and permitting, and equipment procurement and construction. With that knowledge, John leads teams of talented, experienced attorneys who assist our firm’s clients throughout the life-cycle of their projects.

Prior to joining the firm, John was a partner for a large, U.S. firm, representing energy clients in complex transactions.
