Department of Commerce Issues Final Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Determinations on Crystalline Silicon PV Products from China and Radically Reinterprets the Scope of the Investigations

As we reported in June 2014, the U.S. Department of Commerce (the “Department”) announced that  certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic (“CSPV”) products from the People’s Republic of China (“PRC” or “China”) had been produced by taking advantage of subsidies, and that such products could therefore be subjected to countervailing duties when imported into the United States (http://www.globalpowerlawandpolicy.com/2014/06/department-of-commerce-issues-preliminary-countervailing-duty-determination-on-crystalline-solar-pv-products-from-china/).

K&L Gates Advises Boralex Inc. on €280 Million Acquisition of Enel Green Power France, Making Boralex the Largest Independent Wind Power Producer in France

New York – A cross-border team of lawyers from global law firm K&L Gates LLP has advised Québec-based Boralex Inc. (TSX: BLX) on its acquisition of French wind farm owner and operator Enel Green Power France SAS for a total net consideration of approximately €280 million in cash. The transaction makes Boralex the largest independent wind power producer in France, and the third largest onshore wind player, behind only the two incumbent French utilities.

The K&L Gates team advising Boralex on the acquisition and on the related approximately €175 million project financing was led by New York corporate partners Sandy Feldman and Holly Hatfield. Other members of the team include New York tax partner Adam Tejeda and corporate associate Justin Purtle; Paris corporate partners Olivia Lê Horovitz and Caroline Ledoux, tax partner Bertrand Dussert, real estate counsel Joanna Klat, corporate associates François Lan, Nawal Sabsibo, and Alexandre Brossier, and labor and employment associate Julie Bouchard; and Frankfurt finance partners Matthias Grund and Bastian Bongertz and finance associate Dominik Pauly.

K&L Gates regularly represents Boralex in both the U.S. and Europe, including in previous transactions in France such as the 2012 acquisitions of French wind company interests from both U.S.-based AES Corporation and French company InnoVent SAS.
