Represented J. Aron & Company LLC (a subsidiary of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.) in its role as commodity supplier, receivables purchaser and investment contract provider in a prepaid natural gas and power transaction financed with more than $539 million in municipal bonds issued by Northern California Energy Authority.
