Increasing government regulation and frequent policy changes have combined with evolving technologies, particularly in the area of renewables, contributing to the complexity of the business environment. Whether you are a lender, investor, contractor or developer, it is essential that any organisation operating in this sector has sound legal advice from a firm which fully understands the in-depth legal, technical and regulatory issues as well as the commercial challenges and constraints.

Our skilled and multi-disciplined energy team offers the full range of project and commercial legal services, both contentious and non-contentious. This experience, combined with our comprehensive understanding of the sector, means that we can provide focused, high quality and cost effective advice at all stages, from planning and construction to operation and maintenance, financing, re-financing or sale.

We have considerable experience in renewable energy projects where we pride ourselves on being able to offer a comprehensive package of legal advice. Our clients value us for the blend of technical expertise, pragmatic advice and quality of service that we deliver.
