Businesses are faced with increasing challenges, implications and opportunities presented by the need to prioritise ESG factors that are driving the energy transition.

We counsel clients on energy-transition related transactions, projects, financing, disputes and regulations that impact their business and strategy.

  • Transition in the energy sector

    Moving to a low carbon economy requires a broad expertise. From energy law and regulatory topics such as EU ETS, health & safety requirements, and environmental regulations to real estate and project finance expertise. The regulatory framework does not always meet the needs of new technologies, and changing regulations require constant vigilance from board members and legal counsel.
