Mayer Brown represents CDPQ in $1 billion investment in Invenergy Renewables

A Mayer Brown team represented Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ), a global institutional investor, in its $1 billion commitment to Invenergy Renewables LLC (Invenergy), the largest private developer, owner and operator of wind and solar projects in North America, to further support the company in its expanded development activities and continued growth.

This commitment, in the form of new investment facilities, represents another important step in CDPQ’s long-term partnership with Invenergy, which began nearly eight years ago with a stake in a portfolio of operating wind farms developed by the industry leader. In the year that followed, CDPQ acquired a direct stake in Invenergy, thus increasing its exposure to the development of renewable energy projects with a world-renowned partner. Over the years, CDPQ has gradually expanded its investments in the company.

The Mayer Brown team was led by Projects & Infrastructure partner Paul Astolfi and Corporate & Securities associate Valentine Bleicher (both Chicago) and included: Corporate & Securities – partners Michelle Gross (NorCal) and Mark Williams, counsel Heather Feingold (both DC) and Paul Chandler and associates Rachel Krajewski, Megan Richard (all Chicago) and Joy Lee (NorCal); Banking & Finance – counsel Chadron Edwards (NY) and associates Katy McNeil and Andrew Mlynczak (both Chicago); Tax Transactions & Consulting – partner Jim Barry and associate Andre Smith; Employment & Benefits – partner Jim Williams and counsel Katie Dean; Litigation & Dispute Resolution – counsel Kim Leffert, Jaimy Hamburg (all Chicago) and Meytal McCoy and associate Isabella Giorgi; and Government & Global Trade – partner Timothy Keeler and associate Mickey Leibner (all DC).
