Micron Announces $100B Project in Syracuse/Hodgson Team Project Counsel

As reported in the New York Times, Micron announced the siting of a chip factory complex in the Town of Clay, located north of Syracuse, NY. Micron has retained a team of Hodgson attorneys (Chris Canada (Albany), Glen Doherty (Albany), Chris Doyle (Buffalo), Terry Gilbride (Buffalo), John Godwin (Buffalo), Joe Scott (Albany) and Jeff Swiatek (Buffalo)) to handle IDA, construction, real estate, tax and labor matters. The firm has already handled a significant amount of work of the matter relating to the structuring and completion of a Project Labor Agreement with the local trade unions through the efforts of Glen Doherty, with support by John Godwin and Jeff Swiatek.

The project is expected to be undertaken in multiple phases over a 10 year period, and involve the investment of over $100 billion. Job estimates include 9,000 Micron employees and over 40,000 jobs for suppliers, contractors and vendors.

The firm secured the work through a contact/referral at the Greenberg Traurig firm, who is acting as government relations consultant to Micron. In addition, the firm was able to demonstrate the experience and skill set necessary to handle such an engagement by describing the work currently being handled by the same team members for a $300M offshore wind manufacturing project to be sited in the Port of Albany.
