Energy - illustration

Every corner of the energy industry is in the spotlight. As the landscape rapidly changes to create a more sustainable world, our energy lawyers offer clear advice at every crossroad.

From inception to conclusion, we know the issues you are likely to face and how to overcome them thanks to our deep expertise across the sector – from nuclear and oil and gas, to renewables, including biomass, geothermal, hydro-electric, solar, wind (both off-shore and on-shore) and waste to energy. 

From the drafting and negotiating of EPCs to dealing with disputes, we provide truly tailored advice on international and domestic energy projects.

Our lawyers

Our team of lawyers understand how to balance the commercial, regulatory, risk and ESG issues that arise on deals and projects throughout the energy industry.

  • Advising BWSC Energy Group on its UK waste to energy projects.
