The energy sector is one of the most significant and fast changing sectors in both the UK and across the globe, where political, technological, environmental and economic factors influence markets at all levels as well as the businesses that service them.
Set against the background of a complicated legislative and regulatory framework, managing legal risk and creating the necessary contractual arrangements to create robust platforms for long term projects can be challenging for companies of all sizes.
Our dedicated Energy team, complimented by specialists from across the firm, has experience of advising a wide range of clients involved in the generation of energy from renewable sources as well as oil & gas and businesses operating in the supply chain. These include major PLCs, institutional investors, commercial developers, landowners, utilities, public sector bodies and community energy groups.
Having worked with companies involved in the full spectrum of generation technologies including onshore wind, offshore wind, solar pv, hydro, wave & tidal and biomass, we also assist in energy efficiency initiatives and the waste sector.
Our lawyers are able to advise on the regulatory issues (including climate change and market support mechanisms), construction and projects, corporate & commercial, funding arrangements and real estate matters. As a full service firm, we also provide legal support in relation to Planning & Environmental, Tax, Dispute Resolution, Health & Safety and Shipping throughout the UK and beyond.
In a rapidly evolving environment we bring an appreciation of the commercial and technical issues which will impact upon your business and provide our advice in an integrated and cost effective manner.
