Infrastructure lawyer Moser hired by Scholer

Attorney Joel Moser (pictured), a familiar commentator on US infrastructure, has joined law firm Kaye Scholer to lead a build-out of its energy and infrastructure practice. He had been working for Bingham McCutchen.

Project finance attorney and noted industry talking head Joel Moser has left Bingham McCutchen for Kaye Scholer, which is determined to “develop a comprehensive, multidisciplinary energy and infrastructure” business.

The law firm named Moser partner in its 30-lawyer energy and infrastructure practice. Kaye Scholer is anticipating energy and infrastructure will experience “significant growth over the next decade,” according to managing partner Mike Solow.

“Bringing on Joel is a key first step in enhancing our current offering,” said Solow in a press statement. Moser, who joined Scholer Tuesday, was not available for comment.

Moser joined New York-headquartered Bingham in 2010 as a partner, focusing on the planning, development, acquisition, financing, operation and the sale of energy infrastructure. Prior to signing on with Bingham, he co-chaired global infrastructure for Fulbright & Jaworski.

Oft-quoted as an authority on infrastructure, Moser, a longtime adjunct professor with Columbia University, is founding editor of Global Infrastructure.  He was also lead counsel for the New York Mets when the Major League Baseball franchise financed its $1 billion Citi Field stadium.
