Professional Affiliations

Randy Perkins draws on 25 years experience as a Moore & Van Allen attorney, corporate in-house counsel, entrepreneur and corporate executive in serving his project finance, leveraged leasing and energy regulation and finance clients.

His 11 years away from the firm, serving as general counsel for a fast-growth energy developer and as co-founder of a start-up energy operation, gave him client-side perspective and insight into management issues, including cost-effective management of legal services.

He represents lenders and developers in all aspects of energy financing projects, such as renewable energy (wind, solar, hydro, and ethanol energy) and conventional fuels (coal and natural gas).  His lending experience extends to healthcare, environmental and equipment-leasing projects.  He also handles general contract, transactional and corporate matters for his clients.

Recent cases include the acquisition of a multi-state wind power operation, where he arranged major long-term financing and analyzed credit risks in a changing regulatory environment.  He also managed the U.S. side of a stock acquisition of a privately-held U.S.-based corporation by a large Canadian public company, which involved a full range of corporate due diligence, third party consents and change-in-control issues.

Perkins’ client service areas include:

  • Business transactions/contract law
  • Secured lending
  • Project finance
  • Equipment/project leasing
  • Renewable energy development 
  • Electricity regulation
  • Project restructuring
