Gregory E. "Greg" Schmidt
I proudly characterize myself as a practical lawyer. While clients can count on me to be tough and well-versed in their legal issues, they don’t need me to showboat or fight every aspect of absolutely everything to the death, simply for the sake of doing so. They don’t need to pay for that. After gaining a deep understanding of clients’ needs and motivations, I help them prioritize their legal and business concerns and develop strategies that enable them to prevail upon the points that really matter. This is what keeps their business—and business relationships—moving forward.
A seasoned corporate attorney who specializes in mergers and acquisitions, Greg Schmidt takes a pragmatic approach when helping clients merge, acquire or divest business assets, or negotiate their contracts. While his international practice is not industry specific, in the energy space alone he has completed the purchase of solar and wind farms, negotiated the Development Asset Acquisition Agreement to facilitate other renewable energy projects, and negotiated power purchase agreements, supply and other contracts between energy suppliers, producers and consumers. He has also done numerous deals in the pharmaceutical, furniture, software and electrical controls and supplies industries.
