Monica Dozier is co-chair of Bradley’s Renewable Energy team. Monica represents contractors, developers, and engineers in utility-scale renewable energy projects, focusing on risk mitigation and dispute avoidance throughout the development, construction, operation, and maintenance phases of projects.

Monica has significant experience with utility-scale energy developers and contractors, including drafting and negotiating EPC, O&M, and other associated agreements (such as supply agreements and subcontracts) for utility-scale, commercial and industrial, and distributed grid projects around the world. She works with clients to tailor and negotiate agreements to these projects according to specific risk assessments, coordinating risk assumption among parties upstream and downstream. She also advises clients in project management decisions and managing claim procedures with the goal of avoiding litigation. Monica reviews and assists clients across the nation in code compliance (including contractor, engineering and other trade licensing). Over the past several years, she has developed and led client-focused seminars at project sites with materials developed using the client’s contracts as the “textbook.”

Monica believes that no client’s core business is litigation, and understands the significant pressures of fast-paced renewable energy projects. She strives to provide legal advice as a business partner with her clients in order to reach optimal solutions for all parties and to preserve a project’s profitability. From contract negotiation to project management through operation and maintenance of energy projects, Monica is committed to her clients’ successes in today’s global energy industry.

Monica is also a member of Bradley’s Cybersecurity and Privacy team, advising energy clients on critical infrastructure cybersecurity issues and emerging risks in the era of grid electrification. She is an active member of the North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association and E4 Carolinas, where she is a graduate of its Energy Executive Leaders Program and currently serves on the Communications Task Force. She is a member and past chair of the Excellence in Construction Committee with Associated Builders and Contractors of the Carolinas. She also serves on the board of EarthShare North Carolina, a coalition of nonprofit organizations that have a shared purpose to improve the health of the environment in North Carolina. In 2022, Monica was named to the Charlotte Business Journal’s “Top 40 Under 40,” and was also honored as one of the “40 Gators Under 40” by the University of Florida Alumni Association.
