As the market for renewable energy continues to grow, Perkins Coie has hired two K&L Gates partners who were the firm’s renewable energy practice leads: Portland-based Elizabeth Crouse and San Francisco-based Buck Endemann, the firm said Friday. The duo officially started on May 10.

Endemann had been at K&L for the last six and a half years, while Crouse had been there for more than 12 years. The expectation is that “just about everyone [their clients]” will be joining them at their new firm, Crouse said in an interview.
