The international law firm of Thompson & Knight LLP has launched the Climate Change and Renewable Energy Practice Group, which is made up of attorneys from Thompson & Knight's offices in the U.S., Mexico, Brazil, Algeria and England.

Members of the group will assist clients in the development of business opportunities related to greenhouse gas emission reduction credit projects and credit-trading markets, as well as help companies in the growing renewable energy markets, including firms involved in wind, solar and biofuel technology.

"This initiative will allow our firm to combine its significant energy, project development, tax and finance experience with our experience in wind energy projects and biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel," says Pete Riley, managing partner of Thompson & Knight.
