Our speaker for September is Bryce Alstead of Holland and Hart who represented Sempra in the development of the large Copper Mountain solar project.
Mr. Alstead provides clients with the responsive counsel they need in complex land use and water rights matters, and in real estate and energy transactions. Clients in the energy transmission, mining, geothermal, solar, real estate development, and resort industries count on his guidance. Regarding the Copper Mountain projects, he handled the real estate, land use (City Council hearings), and construction contract work for each of the CMS 1, 2, and 3, projects. He is primarily a real estate and permitting lawyer for energy projects (primarily solar, geothermal, and transmission).
Working from the firm’s Reno and Las Vegas offices, Mr. Alstead has experience covering a broad range of land use issues common to Nevada, such as zoning changes, special use permits, water rights issues, and variances. Mr. Alstead’s experience also covers the areas of gaming and liquor licensing, development agreements, municipal leasing for energy generation and transmission projects, and open meeting law counseling. While he typically represents project proponents, Mr. Alstead also has successfully opposed land use applications.
