We work closely with our Corporate, Finance, Restructuring and Capital Market teams to counsel purchasers, sellers, lenders, borrowers, creditors, debtors and underwriters on a wide range of financing, M&A, restructuring and securities matters, especially for energy and infrastructure projects throughout the world.

Whether negotiating renewable energy projects, resolving environmental issues for heavy manufacturing companies in M&A matters, advising on financing oil and gas pipelines or counseling the acquisition of debt assets for a nationwide portfolio of gas stations, we can advise on both business and regulatory aspects, including complex environmental and permitting matters that can be central to each transaction.

Natural resource production and distribution—we have identified and contractually allocated environmental risks in numerous upstream, midstream and downstream oil & gas and natural resource financings and acquisitions.

Power—attuned to the complex interplay of environmental concerns and market fundamentals, we regularly advise electricity generation companies on permitting, Equator Principle matters and known and likely environmental liabilities, and counsel lenders and investors on the business implications of proposed and pending environmental legislation and regulations, including those relating to global climate change.

With the traditional power sources in decline, renewable energy is the future.

Wind and solar power will soon be joined by wave, tidal and other new technologies as businesses search for sustainable low carbon energy sources.

If you are a developer looking for advice in connection with a renewable energy scheme, a landowner approached by a developer, or a business considering new technologies, our dedicated team of renewable energy lawyers can help.

We have extensive experience handling the development, implementation and on-going maintenance of large solar farms, commercial solar projects and wind turbine schemes. Our clients include major offshore wind farms and national companies investing in solar power to reduce energy costs.

We can take care of the whole process, from negotiating and drafting development agreements to construction warranties. Once the project is built we can deal with all requirements for the project operating company.

Our renewable energy lawyers are resourceful, responsive and always consider the idiosyncrasies of each individual project.

We are also skilled negotiators. When parties have conflicting interests, our renewable energy lawyers analyse the issues from every angle and ensure your project proceeds smoothly and on schedule.
