Practice groupCorporate & Finance

Patricia Duffy advises lenders, multilateral financial institutions, and developers in connection with the development and financing of energy and infrastructure projects employing conventional as well as renewable technologies. Patricia focuses her practice on project finance due to the ever-changing atmosphere of the energy market and increasing global necessity for natural resources.

Patricia maintains an active pro-bono practice. Most recently, she led a team of lawyers to secure, through a motion for compassionate release, the release of a client who had served 43 years in federal prison and who was at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19. She also frequently staffs a non-partisan voter protection hotline through Election Protection.

Patricia is an adjunct faculty member at the Georgetown University Law Center, where she teaches a course on international business transactions.
