Nixon Peabody lured two energy partners from Syracuse, N.Y.-based Hiscock & Barclay. Peter Swartz and Matthew Moses, who are now partners in Nixon’s Rochester, N.Y., office, advise energy project developers, owners and buyers. The pair have negotiated payment in-lieu of tax (“PILOT”) deals for fossil fuel, nuclear and more than 90% of the wind power projects built in New York to date. Swartz and Moses will enhance the firm’s energy facility development practice and help it compete better for new energy project work, said Nixon partner Jean H. McCreary, a Rochester lawyer who leads the firm’s energy and environmental practice group. “Energy clients are investing in the modernization of our electric generating and electric and gas transmission infrastructure regionally and nationally,” McCreary said. Scott M. Turner, the managing partner of the firm’s Rochester office, said the hires are a key piece of the office’s growth strategy. “They bring exciting new opportunities for the Rochester office and the firm as their energy projects will involve Nixon Peabody’s environmental, energy regulatory, finance, tax, syndication, and real estate practices,” Turner Said.
