We’re proud of the fact that our energy and natural resources group is built from true sector specialists. Individuals that really understand what clients in this sector need and are able to answer questions better than anyone else.
With a strong track record in power projects our expertise has evolved with the industry to include renewables, energy from waste and oil & gas, as well as increasingly international projects and transactions. This commitment to flexibility is one of the reasons we are trusted to advise five of the ‘big six’ companies, including EDF, Centrica and Scottish Power, as well as other major utilities such as ESBi (the Irish State power company). Clients also include leading independents such as Renewable Energy Generation Plc, Renewable Energy Systems Plc, Banks Renewables, lenders and funds such as The Renewable Infrastructure Group (TRIG) and regulators including OFGEM and the Oman Regulator.
We put ourselves in your shoes. Many of our lawyers have worked as senior in-house counsel for large multinational energy and oil companies and our secondment programme means that we’re working with many clients day-in-day-out. Over the last year our lawyers have joined the teams at BG, EDF and Nexen, amongst others. It’s important to us that you feel you have the right people working on your team, providing clear, commercial advice, across the legal disciplines that is practical and grounded in real industry insight.
"They produce excellent work. They display flexibility, adaptability and are very easy to work with."
