The global appetite for energy continues to grow, and so does the demand to change the way it’s delivered and consumed  — with sustainability taking center stage. In this changing environment, Mintz remains a step ahead. We partner with energy innovators and investors to engineer solutions. Our attorneys know your business and provide forward-thinking strategies throughout your company's  lifecycle. That's how we guided EnerNOC, from its start-up days through taking it public and beyond.
