Eamon Nolan is a project finance attorney who focuses on large infrastructure and energy projects.

Eamon regularly represents private equity sponsors, banks, and developers in financing transactions involving the acquisition, development, and divestment of infrastructure and energy assets in the U.S. and Latin America.
