Gershman, Brickner & Bratton Inc. and Stern Brothers & Co. recently announced that they will enter into an agreement for waste-to-energy (WTE), infrastructure and alternative energy sector projects. Under the advisory relationship agreement, GBB will support Stern’s execution of specific transactions by providing strategic industry consulting, industry research, project due diligence, financial analysis and other functions related to the development of energy and infrastructure projects.

“This is a natural joint venture that will create valuable synergies as both firms have extensive complementary experience and fields of expertise,” stated John May, managing director at Stern and co-head of the firm’s renewable energy practice, which he founded in 2003. “We look forward to join forces with the GBB team on renewable energy financing projects, providing clients with resources, knowledge and expertise that are second to none.”

“GBB’s combination of energy and solid waste management experience enables us to evaluate technologies and operations, including the potential to use alternative fuels and provide recommendations that take into account technical, legal, and economic issues,” said GBB President and cofounder Harvey Gershman. “Joining forces with Stern, one of the top renewable energy bankers in the country, further advances and enhances the range of services that we both offer to renewable energy industry players.”
