Renewables and Net Zero

We enable organisations in the renewables sector to realise their goals and speed-up the transition to a future fuelled by sustainable energy.

In a dynamic sector like renewable energy, you need lawyers who know how the market operates, the implications of policy and regulation, and how to adapt to heightening pressures – such as environmental, social and governance concerns. They need to anticipate issues and provide commercial, sustainable solutions. 

Our extensive experience means we are the team you need. We listen to the issues you face and identify how to move forward. We work across a wide range of energy types providing a unique viewpoint of the sector.

Our expertise ranges from procurement to property to project finance and payment security, from construction and engineering to regulation, risk and dispute resolution.
