Clean energy

We've been involved in clean energy for more than 20 years. With an outstanding reputation for innovation and a track record of working with some of the most entrepreneurial companies in the sector, we regularly advise on "first of a kind" projects including subsidy-free, multi-technology, energy storage, EV charging infrastructure and cleantech.

Our experienced legal team is one of the few that can provide UK-wide legal advice, supporting projects in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Our dual-qualified clean technology specialists can also provide advice in the Republic of Ireland.

We're one of only a few UK law firms with the specialist expertise to advise on all aspects of clean energy projects across the range of technologies and project lifecycle. We’re regularly instructed on projects which require financing, corporate transactional, real estate, planning, grid, offtake and construction expertise. In addition, we’re recognised for our expertise in specialist areas such as IP, technology, commercial dispute resolution, European grant funding, commercial partnerships and corporate and private wire arrangements.
