Birmingham law firm Wragge & Co has advised BP on a major wind energy deal.
Its corporate group acted on a strategic alliance between BP Alternative Energy and Clipper Windpower.
The deal includes a long-term turbine supply agreement, the joint development of five of Clipper's wind energy projects in the US and a five-year option entitling BP to a ten per cent equity interest in the AIM-listed company.
With an anticipated generating capacity of 2,015 MW, it is a significant step in BP's investment in renewables.
It is also Wragge & Co's fourth energy sector deal in four months. The others are Wind Direct's joint venture with, and £20 million investment from, private equity firm HgCapital and deals for Alstec and Opus Energy.
Partner Richard Haywood led a team of partner Andrew Smith, director Julian Smith and associate Karon Maguire.
Mr Haywood said: "This deal is a timely, high profile, strategic investment for BP in the alternative energy sector."
Clipper is a wind energy technology, turbine manufacturing and wind project development company.
