Sidley represented United Airlines Ventures in its launch of the United Airlines Ventures Sustainable Flight Fund SM, a first-of-its-kind investment vehicle designed to support start-ups focused on decarbonizing air travel by accelerating the research, production, and technologies associated with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The fund starts with more than US$100 million in investments from United and its inaugural partners Air Canada, Boeing, GE Aerospace, JPMorgan Chase, and Honeywell. Through the fund, participants will invest alongside United in SAF technology and production start-ups identified by United.
The Sidley team was led by Kevin P. Lewis (Transportation) and Benson R. Cohen (Investment Funds). The team also included Brad Meissen, EJ Lee, and Jacob Sitto (all Investment Funds); John T. Schaff and Nathan Enfield (both Tax); and Paul M. McBride (Energy and Infrastructure).
