Our proven team is strategic, trustworthy, disciplined and cost-effective.

Power & Electricity: Rosette, LLP attorneys have represented tribal owners and developers of electricity projects in all aspects of development including contracts, statutes, regulations and government affairs. Specifically, our attorneys have direct expertise with fossil and renewable generation development, transmission and distribution systems, utility formation, electric policy development and regulatory representation before state and federal offices. Our broad experience includes success with industries tied to power, for example investor owned utilities, telecommunications, agriculture and irrigation, water infrastructure, natural resources, mining, and housing.

Energy & Natural Resource Development: Rosette, LLP has assisted tribes with every phase of project development from initial planning and feasibility studies, to closing negotiations and project financing.

Expert teams from Rosette, LLP have generated the best solutions while successfully negotiating the complex universe of energy for our clients.

Renewable Energy: Rosette, LLP attorneys are committed to sustainable economic development and responsible energy portfolios. Tribal lands contain nearly 5% of the United States renewable generation potential. Trends show that tribal projects are becoming more valuable in solving our energy challenges. However, the complexities surrounding land, permitting, financing, renewable energy incentives and business transactions all hinder the successful development of vital projects for the tribal community and its partners. Rosette, LLP practitioners have a proven record of developing solar, wind, hydro, biomass and other renewable energy projects throughout the United States.
